This yarn is made in Norway in the Sandnes Garn factory. The sheep that this merino comes from are not subjected to mulesing, and the cotton is produced ethically in India. The Sandnes Garn factory follows very strict EU regulations, is regularly tested for toxins, and runs almost completely on electric power from Lyse, whose energy source is hydropowered.

Duo is a lovely yarn for those transitional seasons like spring or fall when you want to be warm but not too warm, but it's also lovely all year round. There's enough elasticity from the wool to do any kind of garment or accessory, but enough breathability from the cotton that you won't be sweating!
