Navia Tradition

Tradition is a true heritage yarn.  Spun from 100% Faroese wool, this yarn has been produced to meet a demand for authentic yarns that have been popular in the Faroe Islands for knitting ‘skipstroyggjur’ or boatman’s jerseys.  In Faroese, the yarn is called “Samfingid” meaning ‘unsorted’ where the coarser fibers are not plucked out.  The range of natural shades & traditional colors are ideal for stranded color work & cables.  Garments & accessories knit with Tradition are extremely warm, durable, & will become heritage pieces that can be passed on through generations.  This yarn is especially suitable for rugged sweaters & jackets.
