Viking of Norway has existed since January 2007 and they have their headquarter at Oltedal in Rogaland where they sit in large, beautiful, traditional textile rooms from 1908. The name Viking of Norway relates to an old, local viking story. The battle of Hafrsfjord is a big part of Norway’s history and was fought between Harald Hårfager and other kings. The battle is seen as the definitive fight in Harald Hårfager’s unification of the land of the West and thereby also Norway.
Viking of Norway consists of many key persons with many years of experience within textile production, product development and Norwegian design. Viking of Norway was the first Norwegian company that launched the popular and incredibly soft milk yarn.
The many qualities of Viking yarn
Viking yarn is often used by us in the Nordic countries since it is available in various kinds of wool (Merino wool, Alpaca, Australian wool etc.). Thus, it is especially great for the Nordic climate since it provides us with a lot of warmth and protects us against the cold.
Yarn from Viking also includes the amazing milk yarn, which is soft as cotton-wool, and has the same qualities as silk and wool. Furthermore, it is also claimed that milk yarn has a healing effect on the skin, so it is especially useful for people with allergies and babies. Milk yarn from Viking is available in many fabulous, natural colors, so there is a good opportunity to crochet or knit a pretty blouse for summer or winter, since milk yarn also has a cooling effect when it is hot, just as it warms you when it is cold.Here at Hobbii, you can also get sock yarn from Viking which provides you with the best conditions to knit fabulous socks, which without a doubt will please the one who receives them. The sock yarn is available in many colors which will feed your imagination. Last, but not least, we also offer sport yarn which is used for knitting woolen sport socks which are very useable. This yarn can also be used for crocheting or knitting mittens, sweaters, cardigans or clothing alike.

What our customers say about Viking of Norway
I have been looking for rag type wool for a while and am pleased that this is available. I knit socks for my husband, who is a type 2 diabetic, and he finds the hand knit socks feel better on his feet. These will have the cushion he appreciates and they remind me of the hiking socks we would purchase over 50 years ago from LL Bean in Maine USA.
Beautiful socks from this yarn. Easy to work with, I bought different colors and they all come out nice.
Very nice yarn, perfect for socks. Very soft, too, not scratchy.
Easy to knit, the wool is soft
I love how soft this yarn is! I had hoped I could use it for a thick blanket by using two strands together to equal bulky weight yarn, but it doesn't quite equal a bulky yarn. Nevertheless, I love it. Two strands together works well with size 11 knitting needles, and I just chose a pattern that required two strands of worsted weight yarn held together. Here's the pattern I'm using: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/textured-weekend-throw. Service was on time and I had no trouble with the order.
Gorgeously soft yarn that crochets very smoothly. I normally don’t make scarves because I have sensitive skin and most yarns make me itch. Not so this. Im making myself a lovely warm, soft and lightweight scarf in a pineapple pattern from Fiberspider on YouTube. It’s looking great.
I bought this in green and purple with my mum in mind. It's such a lovely soft yarn and I know she will love it. She has sensitive skin and will appreciate the softness. It is exactly what i expected when I placed the order and mums getting a top for Christmas.
Have just got this yarn feels wonderful , love the colour sage.I am planning on making a top for myself with it as soon as I have finished what I am working on,I don't leave projects unfinished,so I will have to get busy want to start to work with this yarn.
I saw this was good for eczema and temperature regulating so I had to try it. I have terrible eczema on my arms and legs and I’m excited to make a blanket with this yarn that won’t irritate my skin. It’s very soft and the colors are beautiful!
This is an outstanding yarn I had never heard of it before so I ordered 3balls and made a scarf-WOW it is so soft and works up so nice. Just ordered more can’t wait to get started on a blanket
