Tukuwool – Fingering

9,90

Tukuwool Fingering  is light, airy and soft in it’s roughness. This 2-ply yarn has quite a tight and vivacious twist but it becomes even and smooth after washing. Fingering works well with different gauges whether you want drapier or denser fabric. One skein is enough for a pair woman’s mittens, for a medium size sweater 5 – 7 skeins are recommended depending on the size and fitting.

The wool is a blend of Finnsheep and a Finnsheep-Texel crossbreed yarn and are all spun and dyed in Finland – using only pure Finnish wool. The high quality wool together with the carefully selected colours give our yarn soul and meaning. Let yourself go, play with the warm, natural tones and enchanting, vivid colours.

Tukuwool Fingering is the yarn that started our story. Fingering is light and airy yet rustic. This 2-ply yarn has quite tight and lively twist, though the fabric becomes even and  smooth after washing.

Fingering works well with different gauges and textures and is made for colorwork.  We have chosen colors that are ageless without forgetting the beautiful greys and browns.

The yarn is non-superwash yet easy to care. Finnish wool is soil-repellent so there is no need for washing your hand knit too often. The best way to freshen up your knitwear is to take them out for airing. Give the knitted garment a cold handwash with wool detergent for beautiful finish after knitting and when needed.

Description

“Tukuwool was born from the love for wool. Also from the passion to create something new and unique. We want to give the world  a pure Finnish yarn – raised, spun and dyed in Finland. Knitting is in the center and how material and color works together. Our yarns speaks from individuality, braveness and deep feelings.

Our story began in the year 2014 as a one women hobby. Pauliina Hurme made amazing work and created a working international and Finnish yarn brand. TitiTyy bought the brand in April 2016. Now Tukuwool is growing into a strong international yarn brand. We have several retailers in Finland and all over the world. International demand is growing all the time as we speak.

Tukuwool Fingering is our first yarn and it’s production started in the autumn of 2016. We have now 23 colors in the shade card. In the autumn of 2016 we launched a new Finnish sock yarn Tukuwool Sock which has some of the same colors as our Fingering.

Our home is in Jyväskylä but the yarn is spun in Mikkeli and dyed in Hämeenkyrö. 100 % Finnish wool is the soul of the yarn.

Since the very beginning it has been about the play with colors and joy of knitting. We want to spread the joy by being part of the knitting community. We work closely together with the top knitwear designers of the world.”
