Nord is a 2 ply, woolen spun, fingering weight yarn from Raincloud & Sage, small yarn producers based in Germany. It is 100% wool, made from a blend of Merino (70%) and Ostfriesisches Milchschaf (30%) breeds.
A versatile Nord is a heavy fingering weight yarn but it can also be used at a larger gauge and would work well for patterns calling for a sport weight yarn, or even on occasion DK weight. Read more about Nord in our blog post by Claire Walls aka Flossiknits.
We recommend alternating skeins as you work to give an overall blended appearance.
