Önling no 12 is our our light everyday summer yarn; essential and useful for various knitting projects. Available in many, beautiful colors, some melange and some solid. The yarn is great and soft to work with, but especially after wash, it opens up and becomes even more soft and lovely.
Önling is always on the lookout for new exciting yarns, that live up to our quality standards - and it has been on our wish list for a long time to find a yarn that combines wool and cotton. We find that Önling No 12 has all those qualities and that it suits perfectly for our summer designs and children's designs.
We are very excited to explore this yarn further ourselves, both in new designs, but also in some of our classic models, which will get a whole new expression with Önling No 12.
We are working on new designs and patterns for both children and adults, and we will be knitting in Önling No 12 alone, but also combining it with silk mohair for a lusciously soft expression.

Our Önling No 12 yarn has not been pre-washed when you get the cones. You will get the best result by soaking the finished sweater in lukewarm water for approx. 2 hours and subsequently washing it gently using wool wash, either by hand or in your washing machine using its wool program. Dry it by laying it flat on a dry towel.
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.
Why choose Önling?
It is our ambition to design your favorite knitwear, with a classic, versatile expression to make you feel smart and comfortable. Önling means favorite in Danish - so we take this ambition quite seriously, as we named our company after it.
We sell yarn under our own label - yarn that is produced in a family-run yarn mill in Italy. The yarn is produced according to organic standards and can be traced back to the individual sheep on the specific field, to ensure the welfare of the animals. All our yarn is off course mulesing-free.
