Locally produced yarn from the Havelland region in Brandenburg:
A sport-weight yarn (320m per 100g) suitable for many projects, from hats and scarfs to clothing.
A merino wool yarn from a region called Havelland to the west of Berlin in the state of
Brandenburg. For its production it had to travel relatively little. As there are no scouring facilities in Germany which work on a big scale, the wool had to travel to Poland for scouring. Apart
from this it was spun and dyed in Brandenburg (except for the colours BARUTH Blue and GRANSEE Grey, which were naturally dyed at a dyeing company in Austria). The result is a 2-ply woollen spun
yarn, which is wonderfully light and suitable for a variety of projects. You can find the yarn here.
