Kingfisher Yarns - Norumbega
Norumbega is a distinctive Aran weight yarn, spun right here in Maine from 100% U.S. wool. Previously known as Botanica, this sturdy yarn was first created for weavers over 40 years ago - and it is still being spun in the same family-run mill that we've used for decades.
Norumbega's smooth, pearly 2-ply twist creates a delightfully squishy but durable fabric that is very resistant to pilling. Its warmth, softness and long-lasting wear make it a great choice for sweaters, jackets and winter accessories that will last season after season.
This hearty New England classic can be used for any yarn-related craft such as weaving, crochet, or knitting - and it felts beautifully.
