Sandnes Garn's and PetiteKnit's collaboration has created a wonderful new yarn SUNDAY which is the perfect base yarn: a thin non-superwash treated merino wool that can be knitted in both single and double thread. Or knit together with a thread with Silk Mohair. The yarn is suitable for both baby and children's clothing, as well as adults trendy wardrobe.
Merino wool is not only insulating, but also wicks moisture away from the body and retains heat even when moist, thanks to the structure of the fibers. Wool can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in water before it starts to feel wet.
For machine washing, we recommend that all wool garments be washed separately on a wool program, to ensure the gentlest treatment. Due to the unique absorbency of the merino wool, it is important to centrifuge hand-knitted garments well before drying them on a flat surface, preferably on top of a towel. Never use a laundry bag when washing hand-knitted wool garments. This creates friction that can cause the garment to felt.
Sandnes Garn was founded in 1888 & is still privately owned and operated in its original location in Sandnes, Norway. The majority of the wool for their yarn is locally sourced from Norway, while great care is taken to ensure any imported materials are ethically sourced and mulesing free. Sandes Garn specializes in high-quality knitting yarns for the crafting enthusiast and we are sure you will fall in love with their yarn as much as we have!
