Kaino is the newest addition to our Finnish Finnsheep line of yarns. It is a truly special yarn, produced entirely in Finland of Finnish Kainuu Grey wool and spun to a carded, DK weight, 3-ply yarn.
This smooth yarn is perfect for cabled projects. It yields incredibly warm accessories, such as mittens and hats, and yields a soft and warm fabric. With gauges of 16 to 22 stitches per 10 cm (4 to 5½ sts per inch) it yields quick knits which will keep you warm in any weather.
The base yarn for all our Finnsheep wool yarns is either natural gray or natural white. Please choose the base you want in the drop-down menu. In dark colorways it is possible to mix both white and gray bases, but in light colorways the gray base yarn will yield a slightly muted and slightly darker hue.
If we have the same colorway in both bases in stock, both base yarn options have been photographed. See product photos for details. The base yarn color has been marked in each photo.
Hand-washing is strongly recommended.
