The local yarn is made of wool from the Old Norse sheep, also known as Wild Sheep, at Ytre Lygra and Lurekalven in Nordhordland and spun at Hillesvåg wool spinning mill, Norway. The wild sheep on Ytre Lygra and Lurekalven are outdoors year-round and graze in the coastal heather moors.
The yarn is robust but still soft, and the garments become softer after blocking and washing. The yarn is recommend for jumpers, jackets, mittens and socks. The wool from wild sheep is known to be relatively water-repellent and very warm.
