Literally "old series" this 2 ply wool from Rauma is densely spun with a tight twist for durability. A traditional choice for Selbuvotter gloves and mittens this is the recommended yarn for several of the patterns in Ann B̴årdsgård's Selbuvotter and Nina Granlund Sæther's Mittens from Norway. The suggested gauges and needle sizes are ideal for mittens and socks, try knitting it on a larger needle for garments. Not the softest fibre, as it's intended to be hardwearing, but it has a pleasingly smooth texture once knit up. Handwash only.
