Spun at a family owned mill located in the beautiful town of Hillesvåg, North of Bergen. Founded in 1898 the mill is now a working museum, part of the European Économusée network. The Norsk Pelsullgarn range is spun from fibre from the Norwegian pelssau breed, which has a lustrous, grey, curly fleece with a relatively soft, fine hand. The breed is a cross between Gotland and the Norwegian heritage breed Spælsau. Dyeing the grey fibre (2115 is the natural colour) produces a beautiful palette of rich colours. Equally beautiful in colourwork and textured patterns.
As the fibre is naturally grey there is no white, which is useful for colour work. Consequently we also have naturally white lambswool from Hillesvåg - Vilje combines well with Sølje.
Note: the cabled sample is gul (2119) and the colour work is rødgul (2122) and dongeriblå (2113) with Vilje.
