Önling No 13 is a wonderful, ultra-thin yarn, made from cashmere and ultra-soft wool from the first shearing of a lamb. This yarn CANNOT be used alone; it is meant to be used as an accompanying strand to add a touch of color, texture and structure.
Our Everyday Yarn, Önling No 12, and No 13 make up a fantastic combination, as No 13 gives No 12 a softer look, better texture and firmer structure. You can knit any size of an entire sweater using 2 cones of No 12 and 1 large cone of No 13. It can also be combined with Silk Mohair or lots of other yarns; only your imagination limits your options.
95% first-cut lambswool and 5% Cashmere. Large cone contains 1600 m = approx. 80 g.
Available in two sizes – if you wish a small cone instead, click here: Önling No 13, cashmere thread small cone, 1000 m (approx. 50 g.)

Önling No 13 is our new ultra-thin Cashmere yarn, a wonderful basic yarn that may be used for many different knitting projects. It comes in a lot of beautiful, mottled colors. It is a delicious yarn, and after being washed it will open up and turn even softer.
Önling is always looking for new, exciting yarns, and we have been searching for quite a while for a beautiful accompanying strand of yarn that will liven up other yarn types, add a touch of color, texture and deliciousness. Önling No 13 meets all those criteria, and also lives fully up to Önling's quality demands.
All our designs in Önling No 12, can be knitted in one strand No 13 and one strand No 12. For inspiration, knitting patterns with Önling No 12 here, as well as knitting kits with Önling No 12 here.
The yarn Önling No 13 has not been prewashed when you receive the cones. You get the best result by soaking the finished project in lukewarm water for about 2 hours. Then wash the project as you would otherwise do using a wool wash, either by hand or using the wool cycle of your washing machine. Dry flat.
Wool can last for years, but it requires good care. Washing is tough on your woolen garments and in general wool needs to be washed much less than other materials as it has a self-cleaning effect. Often it is enough to hang your woolen sweater / garment outside in the humid weather or bring it with you into the bathroom, when you take a long, hot shower - the steam will often be enough to freshen it up it and remove any unwanted odors.
Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Everyday Kit
Neither Önling No 12 nor No 13, is pre-washed when you receive it on cones. You get the best result if you soak your finished knitted garment in lukewarm water for approx. 2 hours. Then wash the garment as you would otherwise with washing detergent for wool, either by hand or on a wool program in your washing machine. Dry it by laying it flat.
Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Silk kit
As the Silk Kit from Önling contains 3 different qualities (linen, wool and silk), we recommend that you always wash your silk sweater / garment by hand, to avoid it changing shape or appearance during wash. The three qualities will react differently to water, temperatures, etc. Önling can not take responsibility for the result if you wash your silk sweater in the washing machine. Your garment made from the silk kit should NOT be spun or tumble dried. Instead, dry it by laying it flat.
