Dundaga's Wool Factory is the only wool processing company in Latvia which makes a complete wool processing cycle from wool washing to finished yarn dying. The wool only from Latvian sheep is used for yarn production. Purchasing this yarn we get the most natural and ecological product.
1. Choose animal fibers for winter, plant fibers for summer.
Yarns and blends with cotton or bamboo are best for summer projects. In Latvia there is one special option - linen. In most cases linen has more advantages on cotton. Besides - linen is fiber from our latitudes therefore most suited for our needs.
2. Pick a color you love.
The first thing we tend to see when we look at a new yarn is the color, so choose colors that inspire you.
3. A fiber you love to touch is often a yarn you’ll love to work with and wear.
When it’s hot out we tend to wear fewer layers, so shawls and cover-ups will probably touch your skin. Many crafters hold a skein of yarn to their cheek or throat to see if it will feel comfortable.
