Jensen Yarn is a classic from Isager, a lovely wool yarn and a "go-to yarn" for knitters. We love the soft, "woolen" look. Jensen Yarn is made with 3 threads and the thick wool yarn from Isager. It can be worked on needle size 4mm on its own, as we have done with our icelandic sweaters Björk and Draka. Jensen Yarn can also be combined with Isager Silk Mohair which gives the softest and most delicate wool quality imaginable. We have used this combination for our Alma cardigan and Aura cardigan.
Jensen Yarn was the first classic wool yarn from Isager, with a broad selection of colors chosen by the founder of the company Åse Lund Jensen, with basis in the Danish plant dyes. Many often the colors originally developed for Jensen Yarn are today available in the other Isager yarns Spinni and Tvinni.

Origin of the yarn:
Jensen Yarn is spun and dyed in Denmark 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 Jensen 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.
