HAUNUI, pronounced Hoo-noo-ee and translated as “place of the winds“.
Mr. Noro was enchanted by this unique mixed-breed Haunui merino stock from the Taranui farm in New Zealand. The non-mulesed sheep are raised ethically and have their fleece gently harvested with a layer of protection left behind. This yarn combines the natural colors and texture of the fleece harvested.
The yarn has a slight thick and thin quality to the single ply, and is available in five colors. True wool lovers will cherish this limited-quality, slightly rustic, un-dyed yarn.
No two sheep are exactly the same color, but their fleeced fall into color categories, and are blended to create rich shades of oatmeal, brown, gray, and black.
