Just the right strength and magnificent colors have made Novita's 7 Brothers a true long-term favorite. 7 Brothers is a blend of 75% superwash wool and 25% nylon. The warmth and stretch of the yarn comes from the high-quality wool, while the durability comes from the nylon used. Yarn is suitable for any knitting or crochet patterns with Aran or Worsted as the recommended weight. Multiraita & Raita are self-striping qualities of 7 Brothers, while Polaris is a variegated colouring.
We recommend needle sizes 3.25mm - 3.75mm for socks, or 4.50mm - 5.50mm for other items such as hats, mittens and sweaters.
Machine washable at 40 degrees - we recommend on a delicate cycle. Novita is always made in Finland.
