Tuku Fingering

$11.53

Finland might not be the first country coming to mind when thinking of spinners – Tuku Wool wants to change that! To this end, they've created Tuku Fingering, a classic 2-ply. The yarn has a tight twist that blooms in the wash, making the final knit even and smooth but keeping the natural texture from the Finnish wool.

The fingering weight is a good choice for a variety of projects, close-knit sweater, drapey shawls and windproof gloves alike. For a pair of woman's gloves, you'll need one skein, while a medium-sized ladies' sweater used 5-7 skeins, depending on the fit.

Finnish wool (like all natural wool) is naturally dirt repellant. Your finished garment will therefore last longer if you air the knit instead of washing it – even better if you can air it when it is damp and/or cold out!
