Woolfolk is an American company whose yarn offerings are truly unique. The Ovis 21 Ultimate Merino used is the finest wool fibre, notable not only for its softness but also for its ability to take and hold dye resulting in a beautiful and enduring depth of colour. The wool is farmed in the Patagonian Grasslands by farmers who pride themselves on being stewards of the land. Sustainable and ethical practices as well as a refined design aesthetic set Woolfolk apart.
Similar to her sister Tynd, Sno is a 2-ply fingering weight yarn. Whereas Tynd is a solid colour, Sno is made up of two strands of different colours twisted together. These blends can be either high contrast and striking or low contrast and subtle, either way it gives a lovely hint of visual interest and texture. Sno can be used on its own or along with Tynd and Woolfolk have many patterns that showcase the interesting design features that can result when playing with the two, such as the Lun shoulder warmer.
