Snefnug means “snowflake” in Danish. A beautiful Aran weight yarn from CaMaRose, Snefnug has a cotton mesh tube as the core with a luscious blend of merino and baby alpaca blown into it, making it a hard-wearing but super soft, light and airy.
Snefnug is perfect for baby and children’s knits as well as the oversized adult knits such as sweaters, cardigans, scarfs, and beanies knit on a looser gauge on big needles.

^Handwashing the finished project is recommended. Use a wool detergent and lay flat to dry. Machine washing can make the finished project shrink by 7%, but it will stretch in use.
It is also recommended to knit ribbing a bit tighter as these too will stretch in use.
