Several older Rauma and Arnhild patterns written for 3-ply Strikkegarn are now online. They are available only with yarn pacs until I figure out which are still available in English.

An interchange chart for Dale to Rauma colors is also available on both the Heilo and 3-ply Strikkegarn pages.

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
