Daruma – Iroiro Roving


Iroiro Roving is a beautiful single ply yarn, spun with a little bit of twist. Iroiro means ‘various’ in Japanese, an apt name to reflect the wide variety of colours available in the range. Made from 100% wool, this aran weight yarn comes in small balls of 20g. Due to its format and wide choice of colours, Iroiro Roving is particularly suited to stranded knitting where only small amounts of each colours is required. It is also a fantastic option for amigurumi or making pom poms. If you like Iroiro Roving don’t forget to checkout its little sister Ioiro

Daruma was founded in 1901 by Chozaemon Yokota, an innovative industrialist who firmly believed in the importance of producing long lasting and high quality products. First specialised in the production of sewing thread,  Daruma eventually expended to knitting and crochet yarn in the 1950s. Today Chozaemon Yokota motto’s  “Price is always changing, Quality is timeless” is still at the heart of the company ethos. Daruma carries out their spinning and dyeing in Bishu, the traditional place of production of woollen fabric in Japan.
