This yarn has more natural lanolin left, so it smells like sheep more than other Riihivilla yarns.
Hiisi is made of long combed wool fibers so it feels smooth to hand. It is 5-ply and has a very tight twist, so it even though it is 100% wool it is durable also in socks (unlike other Riihivilla's 100% wool). Hiisi is also perfect for sweaters, hats or mittens with only one color. Cables show up great when knitted with Hiisi. Even though is under sockyarns, it is great all-purpose yarn for any project which needs thick yarn. You need two skeins for a pair of socks, and three skeins for two pairs of big socks.
