Sandnes Garn today holds the position as the largest producer of hand knitting yarn in Northern Europe, one of the world’s most up-to date spinning mills – in one of the oldest factories still running.

Double Sunday is Sandnes Garn's thickest variant of 100% merino wool and is the perfect base yarn: a thick, non-superwash treated yarn that can be knitted with single and double strands. It can also be knitted together with Tynn Silk Mohair.

Merino wool is not only insulating, but also wicks moisture away from the body and retains heat even when moist, thanks to the structure of the fibers. Wool can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in water before it starts to feel wet.

Sandnes Garn sources from supplier who has guaranteed that the wool purchased does not come from sheep that have been subjected to mulesing.
