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.
