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

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.
