Well, the possibilities really are endless!
Rauma Garn is a Norwegian brand, and their core range includes Norwegian Wool and Lambswool as well as merino, alpaca and summer yarns (which I don't currently stock).
Norwegian and lambswool are fibres that are sturdy, light and tend to get softer with wear.
In terms of softness, baby garn (100% merino is their softest), followed by Fivel, their dk weight Norwegian Wool yarn. Both Finull and Lamull are very fine fingering weight options that create light and airy garments. Finally Alpaca Silk is a great alternative to silk mohair, especially for those who find mohair a little (or a lot) itchy.
One of the first places to look for patterns to use Rauma Garn would be their website, they have over 3,500 patterns avalable, including over 150 free patterns. So even if you're not planning a Rauma Garn project it's a treasure trove of inspiration and ideas.
The next step is to get familiar with their gauges and running lengths to see if they are suitable to sub into a pattern you already have (or are eye-ing up).
