For over 35 years, our unique Aran weight 2-ply yarn has provided us with warm, cozy sweaters that still look good after years of wear. The tight, pearly twist of Norumbega Yarn (previously known as Botanica) makes it impervious to pilling, and this Maine-made yarn is an excellent choice for hard-wearing sweaters and cold weather accessories.
