Norumbega Medium Yarn description:

Norumbega is a distinctive Aran weight yarn, spun right here in Maine from 100% U.S. wool. Previously known as Botanica, this sturdy yarn was first created for weavers over 40 years ago - and it is still being spun in the same family-run mill that we've used for decades.

Norumbega's smooth, pearly 2-ply twist creates a delightfully squishy but durable fabric that is very resistant to pilling. Its warmth, softness and long-lasting wear make it a great choice for sweaters, jackets and winter accessories that will last season after season.

This hearty New England classic can be used for any yarn-related craft such as weaving, crochet, or knitting - and it felts beautifully.

Care: Hand wash gently in lukewarm water. Lay flat to dry.

Weavers:

Norumbega is stretchy so when winding your warp, add at least 10-20% extra to the length because the warp will shorten considerably when tension is released. When weaving, always release the warp tension before measuring the picks of your weft, otherwise it will be inaccurate. The smoothness of Norumbega makes densely warped double weave a snap.

Additional information:

Norumbega is worsted spun for a more firm yarn, with fewer yards per pound than a standard worsted weight yarn, so you will need to add an extra 25-30% yarn by weight, or purchase based on actual yardages for worsted patterns. The unique spiraled twist creates a distinctive yarn with a shadowed or corded appearance that looks fantastic in every stitch and lends great texture and definition to your piece. Norumbega offers exceptional shine and luster with a soft and springy hand. Norumbega is very strong and holds its shape well, making it a great yarn for classic pieces you'll hand down for generations!
