Sure to become a firm favourite (and a knitting-stash staple) this excellent sock yarn is named after a village in Portugal, which was once famous for its sock-knitting industry.
Made from fine Portuguese wool, Mondim can also be used for shawls, accessories and lightweight jumpers, and comes in a fantastic range of colours from vivid brights to classic neutrals and variegated shades too.

Got fantastic help in the store. The assistant knew the project I wanted the yarn for and showed me how to take a picture of my choice of yarns and make it black and white to test that it was a shaded gradient of colour, as required in the project.
It’s not the softest yarn but I find it wearable against my skin at least. Knits nicely, blooms beautifully. Good for colourwork and getting a solid fabric without being too heavy. Love the brand’s ethics as well.
A Yarn Story stocks an interesting variety of yarn. I was looking for Rosa Pomar's Mondim in colour 302 and found it here. I always take a look at the online shop window of A Yarn Story as there is always a good selection of interesting yarns on offer, not to mention the sales items. The speed at which my order was delivered was optimal. Excellent service thanks.
