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.

Tynn Silk Mohair is our thin variant of Silk Mohair and is a soft and luxurious blend of the finest mohair, wool and silk. The yarn is thin and goes a long way. If you knit with Tynn Silk Mohair using one or more strands, you will get a light, airy and luxurious garment. If you use Tynn Silk Mohair as an accompanying strand together with other yarns, you will get an exciting result and good hold in any garment.

Mohair is wool from the Angora goat. This goat breed has long, silky-smooth, and curly wool fibers. Ordinary wool is added to give the yarn resilience and volume. The silk adds strength and shine while holding the fibers together when the yarn is brushed. The result is a soft, light and airy yarn with a fuzzy texture.
