Swans Island Rambouillet

100% American Made!

My favorite yarn from Swans Island Maine is spun entirely from the fleece of Rambouillet sheep raised here in the USA.

And the yarn is dyed in Maine in a way that creates a slight tonal variation in each skein so when knit up the fabric has a rich depth to it.

The sweater project pictured below takes 4-5 each of the 2 main colors and 1 skein of the contrast. I show a closeup of the back of the store model I am working on so you can see better what I mean by "slight tonal variation".

In case you're not familiar with Rambouillet, learn about the breed, and it's interesting history and relation to merino!!

Recommended knit at 6-6.5 sts/inch on a US 4, this yarn features185 yds/skein.

Price: $12.50/skein
