Highland wool is a pure wool yarn spun with three threads. Isager Highland Wool is a significantly softer wool than most other highland wool yarns. The yarn has an amazing structure and is made from Peruvian Highland Wool. We like to knit Highland Wool on its own, as for instance the Limoncello sweater with lace pattern, and the Dervish sweater with stripes. Highland Wool also works well with other yarns, e.g. with Alpaca 1 as we have done in our Daggry shawl and hat.

Origin of the yarn:
Highland Wool is spun and dyed in Peru for the Danish yarn brand Isager. Isager is a respected brand among knitters in Denmark and worldwide, due to their high quality and luxurious yarn.
The company was founded by Åse Lund Jensen, who contributed greatly to the art of knitting with her yarns and knit designs. Today Isager is owned by Marianne Isager and her daughter Helga Isager, who continue to inspire knitters through their knitting books.
Isager today produce around different 20 types of yarn, all of which are of high quality and lovely to work with. See more Isager Yarn here.
We recommend hand washing your Isager Highland Wool yarn at 30 degrees.
Wool does not require washing as often as other textiles, and it is therefore sustainable in daily use as it saves resources from washing. If your wool clothes need “freshing up” hanging it outside will often be sufficient.
