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.


The #nutidenyarn


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.


Nutiden is sold in our webshop on special dates and specific times.
…as a thank you to our patrons we often offer collections to them first.

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.
                           -We dye outside in old laundry pots, over fire, with the earth under, the air around us and 

the water from rain and nature as our companion.

*All handdyed 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.
