A truly special blend of un-dyed Haunui Wool and dyed cotton! Next to skin softness with a fun, colorful tweedy fleck of cotton - we love this yarn for cozy fall sweaters, blankets and winter accessories. This tweed looks especially beautiful in textured knits!
About Haunui Wool
HAUNUI, pronounced Hoo-noo-ee and translated as “place of the winds“. Mr. Noro was enchanted by this unique mixed-breed Haunui merino stock from the Taranui farm in New Zealand. The non-mulesed sheep are raised ethically and have their fleece gently harvested with a layer of protection left behind. This yarn combines the natural colors and texture of the fleece harvested.
No two sheep are exactly the same color, but their fleeced fall into color categories, and are blended to create rich shades of oatmeal, brown, gray, and black.
