Product description

Repurpose. Recycle. Re•Ply.

Creatively re-envisioning excess production, we twisted three strands of lace weight yarn, worsted spun from fine Rambouillet fleeces, into a plush 6-ply DK weight cable reminiscent of couture knitwear. This high-twist treatment results in a luxuriously soft and springy yarn with excellent stitch definition and durability.

    Fiber Characteristics

    Loftier and bouncier than Merino wool, finewool Rambouillet fleeces from Wyoming are worsted spun into feather-light 2-ply strands. “Re-plied” as a trio in a second spinning process, the result is a lush, springy 6-ply cabled yarn with surprising resilience and elasticity, crisply rendering textured stitches and draping beautifully in smooth fabrics.

    Dye Process

    Re•Ply Rambouillet is spun from naturally white wool, then skein dyed into a saturated palette of solid shades that beautifully sets off the soft luster of its finewool fiber.

  • Gauges

    Re•Ply Rambouillet’s plush worsted-spun construction is suitable for a wonderful range of gauges and can be used interchangeably with Arbor and Dapple:

    • 5¼ - 6 stitches to 1"
    • Suggested Needle: 3.75 - 4.5 mm (US 5 - 7)
    • Suggested Hook: 4.5 - 5.5 mm (US 7 - I-9)
  • Care

    This yarn is a handcrafted product. For best results, we recommend alternating skeins when joining in a new skein for even color distribution.

    Wet-Blocking

    Your project isn't finished until it's had its first wash! Follow these steps to watch our yarns bloom into their full beauty.

    1. Fill a sink or basin with cold water.
    2. Add a small amount of gentle soap or detergent.
    3. Submerge your knitted item, gently squeezing out any air bubbles so that the piece remains completely underwater.
    4. Soak until completely saturated, for up to 10 minutes. While our dyes are thoroughly tested for colorfastness, a small amount of excess dye may rinse free during soaking. Using cold water, soap or detergent, and a short soak time will help prevent color redeposit on light-colored fibers.
    5. Drain your wash water and refill with cold water to rinse. (Skip this step if using a no-rinse soap or detergent.)
    6. Gently lift your knitted item from the water and remove excess moisture by rolling it between clean, dry towels with light pressure.
    7. Lay fabric flat and shape to air dry.
