Grå Trønder sheep are a rare, protected, heritage breed of sheep from the Trøndelag region of Norway.

 

The wool from this breed of sheep is scarce.

 

Our aim is to revive and promote this breed, returning it to its original landscape. 

 

We have worked tirelessly for many years to bring this wool to an international market. 

 

Our wool is grown, shorn, and milled locally, within the breed's original landscape. 

 

We raise our small flock, free-range, on the mountain and along the forest path year-round here within Trøndelag.

 

This 2 ply, hand-reared, virgin wool is warm, soft, elastic, and has a beautiful luster and halo.

 

Grå Trøndersau wool was deemed the softest breed of heritage, Norwegian wool, at the London Design Festival.

 

This small batch of our farm yarn was designed to combine the varying shades of gray within the fleece, blended together to highlight the stunning depth of the natural nuances of the wool.

Resulting in a deep, rich, dark shade of gray. 

The original colour of wool from 1857.

Which was used to knit the first, ever, pair of Selbuvotter. 

 

Each skein of 100% heritage Norwegian Wool is numbered and registered. 100 grams = approx 315 meters

Gauge: 26 sts = 10 cm on 3.0 mm needles

Needle size range: 2.0 mm to 2.5 mm

Gauge and needle sizes are approximations, however, this wool is versatile and able to be used across a wide range of tensions. 

Tepid handwash only - lay flat to dry naturally. 

 

Important note: Please do make sure you order enough yarn for your intended project. This is a small batch of farm yarn. This lot cannot be repeated or replicated. It would be difficult to acquire new yarn for a project if you were to run out.
