In the tempestuous North Atlantic Ocean, the Faroese people pride themselves in using the natural resources to survive the unpredictable climate there. On these 18 small islands, the sheep far outnumber the people. The Faroese people and sheep have a rich history and a thriving, woolly alliance that brings us Navia Yarn.
Where are The Faroe Islands?
The Faroe Islands is a self-governing archipelago, part of the Kingdom of Denmark. The 18 rocky, volcanic islands are located between Iceland and Norway in the North Atlantic Ocean, connected by road tunnels, ferries, causeways and bridges. The islands are known for their mountains, grassy meadows and steep coastal cliffs. The islands are home of native Faroese Sheep where they outnumber the people.
Tradition and Brushed Tradition lines of Navia Yarn are made from 100% Faroese Sheep native to the Faroe Islands. These yarns has been produced to meet a demand for old-style yarns that have been popular in the Faroe Islands for knitting ‘skipstroyggjur’ or boatman’s jerseys.
