DUE TO THE SIZE OF THE FINULLGARN RANGE WE HAVE SPLIT THE COLLECTION INTO 2 PRODUCT RANGES: NEUTRALS & COLORS. This is the NEUTRAL range and you can find the NEUTRALS here.
Rauma yarn has been spun since 1927 in Norway. The town of Veblungsnes in Møre og Romsdalis is located in fjord country on the Rauma River on the west coast of Norway.
The company started with 3 employees and continued to develop over the years. The textile factory was completely destroyed by bombing during WWII at which time a new factory was immediately erected. The factory and company was completely overhauled in the 1970's.

The Woolly Thistle is delighted to offer Finullgarn in over 100 shades with more being added. This yarn is excellent for color work and comes in big bouncy 50g balls. It is said this yarn lasts for years and doesn't pill. Rauma Finullgarn has many supporters in the podosphere and beyond.

VANILLA SWEATER = 6 BALLS OF FINULLGARN
At this time if you purchase at least 6 balls of Rauma Finullgarn we will send you the PDF of the Vanilla Sweater pattern. This design is a simple top down raglan sweater that is eminently wearable in just about all seasons. The fingering weight yarn is knitted on a US 6 to achieve a gauge of 5sts/' and a drapey fabric. With 3/4 length sleeves and a cropped body this is a quick knit and a very lovely finished object.
Due to demand we have sold out of the heathered shades (4120-4139) and we are waiting for more yarn to arrive from Norway. We are offering you a PREORDER of those colors (4120-4139) so you can be sure of getting the color you would like. We will be hosting a second KAL starting 6/15 for those of you who Preorder your yarn now.
We expect to receive the PREORDER yarn in the first week of June and we will get your orders out as quickly as possible after that.
As always if you would like to purchase other items with your preorder we will hold everything until your yarn arrives and send everything together. If you would like your other items sooner please submit a separate order and we'll happily get them out to you as soon as possible.
