Welcome to Kirtland's Yarn Barn!

14 Feb 2018

Rauma 3-ply Strikkegarn yarn As Dale Garn yarns sell out, I will be replacing the traditional lines with Rauma yarns. Rauma 3-ply Strikkegarn or "Knitting Yarn" is the most traditional Norwegian yarn used for hats, mittens and sweaters. I have knit with this yarn - it has the same gauge as Dale Heilo and can be used in their patterns. It is a bit more rustic looking than the newer Heilo that is manufactured now in China.

Price: $8.00
  • 3-ply 100% pure new wool
  • 118 yds per 50gm skein
  • 5.5 sts per inch on US #4 needle
  • 12 colors in stock

I have some older patterns written for the yarn. They will be available only with yarn pacs until I figure out which are still available in English. We will work on getting the patterns online over the next couple days, along with an interchange chart for Dale to Rauma colors.
