Mora Yarn is named for
the town of Mora in the Swedish province of Dalarna.
Dalarna is a very traditional part of Sweden and is
especially known for the technique of two-end or twined
knitting, tvåändsstickning in Swedish.
This special yarn is spun for two-end knitting, with
the single threads spun 'S' and the ply spun 'Z'.
This allows for the threads to twist and not 'corkscrew'
around each other. It is especially nice worked in
the traditional way, twining the two ends of the ball
as the knitting is worked. This technique is most
often used for mittens, gloves and socks.
Mora Yarn, made in Sweden, is 100% wool and is available in three natural sheep's colors. There are 328 yards in 100 g.
These natural colors are $12.00 a skein.
