Botanica: Beautiful Maine-Made Wool

Botanica Yarn

Sarannis Jacket, by Robin Melanson

A perfect aran-weight wool, spun and dyed right here in Maine. With 45 rich colors, Norumbega Yarn is a beautiful 100% wool, perfect for knitting or weaving. The distinctive twist of this 2-ply yarn gives your finished pieces a crisp finish that really makes your stitches pop. Super sturdy, yet still soft, it’s perfect for back-to-school items that will last and look great all year long!

In weaving, the soft hand combined with the durability of this yarn makes it perfect for colorful throws and blankets. Terrific for colorwork at a heavier gauge, Norumbega Yarn is ideal in almost any heavy-worsted, or aran weight knitting pattern. With generous yardage (160 yds/skein), Botanica is a great value and a treat to work with.

Here are some of our favorite projects for this classic New England yarn:
