Yarn - Mora


Mora Yarn is named for the town of Mora in the Swedish province of Dalarna. Dalarna is a very traditional part of Sweden and is especially known for the technique of two-end or twined knitting, tvåändsstickning in Swedish. This special yarn is spun for two-end knitting, with the single threads spun 'S' and the ply spun 'Z'. This allows for the threads to twist and not 'corkscrew' around each other. It is especially nice worked in the traditional way, twining the two ends of the ball as the knitting is worked. This technique is most often used for mittens, gloves and socks.
