New in the shop

Faroese wool mixed with wool from the Falklands.

There are seven colours of undyed Snældan: White, light gray, gray, dark gray, charcoal, light brown and dark brown. All hanks are 100 gram.

It is nappað tógv which means the coarse outer hairs of the sheep’s fleece have been pulled of, so the wool is very soft.

For now you can order the white undyed in 1-ply and all the natural colours in 5-ply.
