Snefnug from Danish yarn brand CaMaRose is a super soft, light, airy yet strong yarn that consists exclusively of natural materials in an extra delicious combination of 55% baby alpaca, 35% cotton and 10% extra fine merino. The yarn is produced by a spinning mill owned by an Italian family that has an eye for the environment and animal welfare. The merino wool comes from South America, the baby alpaca from Peru, while the cotton comes from Egypt.
Snefnug is composed of a cotton tube as core in which a fine mix of merino and baby alpaca is blown in, together they give a strong and at the same time super soft and exclusive yarn.
We love Snefnug for baby and children's knitting as well for oversized patterns on large needles for adults, such as sweaters, cardigans, scarves and hats.
