Höner och Eir (Sweden) the makers of Nutiden #nutidenyarn


The YARN - Nutiden is an unspun (undone) 100 % Swedish wool yarn 

- made by us - with as much of nature left in as possible.


Nutiden is sold in our Web shop on special dates and specific times

- as a thank you to our patrons we often offer collections to them first.

Official update information is provided via

-The newsletter


-Header of the WEB shop

and on this homepage top when a date is set.


Nutiden is sold in our Web shop  :

In the drop menu on each listing you have 3 weight options :

- a single 100 g plate (160 SEK/100 g ) - for contrast color or small projects
(note: MAX 2 plates of 100 g per customer - per colorway)
300 g or 500 g pre-packed bags  (155 sek/100 g)
- for bigger projects such as shawls or sweaters.

When placing more than one order,
you can order two x 100 g plates across all orders
- thank you for thinking of everyone when you order so all can get
the amount they want of this limited product. 

Processing time from order to shipping out is between
3-10 workdays.

 “Dry-shedding “

 all Nutiden-yarn can leave stains on fingers and other materials while using it,

remember to soak with a little vinegar for the first blocking and it will be fine for later use.

This is natural when wool is handdyed.

- Thickness of Nutiden : remember that each colorway will always variate.


#honerocheirfiber - Carded fibers  ( 180 SEK / 200 g batts )

 - because of the volume of fibers we need to add shipping weight for the fibers to fit into a parcel. The real weight of one listing of fiber is 200+g - she shipping weight is 265 g - a max of 6 listings of fiber will fit into one order, if you intend to buy both fibers and yarn and multiple orders - be sure to spread the fibers out in different orders so it is easier for the team to pack. NOTE ! there might be additional shipping costs if we can not fit everything in your order into our large size bags ( this size is a fixed max).

We have both volume and weight limit when shipping.


Order size

MAX ORDER - MAX PARCEL – 1600g/1,6kg yarn per parcel  
to make it more fair to everyone, as each collection is limited we have a max per order.
The shop is now set to only allow an order of a max of 2 kg including packaging

- So if the shop says "no shipping to your country" - your order is to heavy!

This is the limit for ONE ORDER - then you place a new one.

Please notice, we do NOT refund shipping fees.

Support and learn all about our work in the podcast


PATREON - a way to show support and get to know the reality behind the craft.
Patreon is a platform to show your support to artists of all kinds - for us - this means you show us 

- that you care for the work we do - working with local Swedish wool, from our old breeds and new

 to be provided all over the world - with our NUTIDEN-YARN and carded fibers - keeping it as natural as possible.

In return for your monthly support - Caroline offers her podcast each week - 

plus special offers from others as well as us.

- we want all patrons to know what we stand for letting all voices be heard - but we want to lift indigenous voices higher - to be heard by all.

We are anti-racist - and we are for lifting awareness about the systematic racism in our everyday lives 

- this means work everyday to learn and do better.


The great thing about unspun yarn:


You can use needles 1,75 mm - 15 mm just adjust how many strands you use. 

Which means - ANY pattern works more or less - just use your creative mind and adjust, you can draft it to become thinner, and hold it double, triple...and you can spin it too if you like.


How many meters/yards per 100 g?

As Nutiden is a un-spun yarn, and we always use different breeds and combinations for each colorway that is always unique - there is no way of knowing the exact amount of meters - as each blend is a little different, Gotland fibers are for example silky and heavy, Swedish Finewool is airy and very light with a low micron... so - we mix and we blend with our hands to make each plate - something special for you.

A general way of measuring is :

For a sweater in double strands for 100 cm bust (M/L size) around 500 g

A sweater in single strands for 100 cm bust (M/L size) around 300 g



We want to bring in our old Swedish sheep breeds in as

 many mixes as possible so - always unique and special.



The making of #Nutidenyarn

Nutiden is dyed with certified pigments, salt, vinegar and water and dyed over fire - outdoors.


All wool is Swedish sourced, Ullkontoret our collaborators, 

very gently washes to leave some of the lanolin in the wool for us

 - as we do not use any spin-oil in our process.


Why do Höner och Eir not use any chemicals or spinoil?

Simply out of need - as Caroline (owner and maker) had allergic reactions to other yarns and is 

highly sensitive to chemicals.

But more than anything - why add things we dont need?

We want a clean and natural product - better for us and the Earth.

Allergies - good for other sensitives to know:

We use incense (rökelse in Swedish) as a natural moth repellent and we do use organic essential oils 

of lavender and Cederwood in

our waters that we spray on the wool during the making of the yarn.
If you are sensitive to incense or essential oils - please leave you yarn outside for a few days and it will air out.


Expect from us:

*Always only Swedish wool - gently washed with as much of nature left in as possible.
             *We only use certified pigments ( half with GOTS-certification), salt and vinegar when dyeing.
                        *All hand dyed wool can bleed (stain).

*Every collection of wool is always unique and is a Limited edition.

*Each colorway is different both in thickness and feelings.

*We do NOT use chemicals in the process of making yarn - such as spinnoil or bleach etc.


Our products comes with as much of nature left in as possible.


Knut and Caroline are the creators of HÖNER & EIR - and the makers of #Nutidenyarn - an unspun yarn -

that will always be unique - each blend is hand-picked and hand-dyed (when dyed) by us.
