Composition: 100% Wool

Size: 50 g

Meterage: 125m

Weight: DK

Needle Size: 3 - 4mm

Gauge: 22 Stitches, 28 Rows on 3mm needles =10cm

As this is a 3-ply yarn, it is a firm and evenly spun yarn well suited for texture knitting as it allows the texture to stand out well.  The yarn is very durable and wears out beautifully in the same way as Tvinni.

Originally, Isager Jensen Yarn was named ÅLJ after knitwear designer Åse Lund Jensen. In the 1960s, Åse Lund Jensen sold handknitted sweaters, she knitted in a heavy Swedish yarn. The heavy weight of the finished garments made shipping costs outside Denmark much too expensive, and this led to a new cooperation between Åse Lund Jensen and the Danish spinning mill, Henrichsens Uldspinderi in Skive. Together, they developed a lighter 3-ply yarn, ÅLJ and introduced it in a new natural colour range which Isager is still the base for our Jensen Yarn, Spinni and Tvinni.

The white wool origins from New Zealand, and the brown and grey wools used for the s-colours origin from Gotland sheep in Europe. The supplier in New Zealand is a brand partner of the Wool Integrity programme that ensures that the principals under this programme such as an animal welfare, environmental sustainability and tracibility are met.

 

Since 1977, Isager, a Danish company, has been furnishing the knitting world with natural fibre yarns and unique patterns. Founded by Marianne Isager, in partnership with her daughter Helga, the company has produced a successful line of knitting books and quality yarns, available in selected stores worldwide. Their story began with Åse Lund Jensen, who drew inspiration from Icelandic and Faroes knitting cultures, crafting a high-quality wool range still cherished today, including her favorites, Spinni and Jensen Yarn. Åse's pioneering spirit continues to influence the brand, driving Isager's commitment to knitting as a recognized craft. Today, Isager, residing in the picturesque village of Tversted, Jutland, offers not just yarns, but also a rich tradition and timeless patterns. We stock Isager not only for their gorgeous and unique offerings, but also for their commitment to sustainable and ethical practices in the creation of their products.
