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

    1. Fill a sink or basin with cold water.
    2. Submerge the fabric in water, gently squeezing out any air bubbles so that the piece can remain under water without being held there.
    3. Soak work for 15 minutes, allowing fabric to become completely saturated.
    4. Remove excess moisture by rolling your fabric between clean, dry towels with light pressure.
    5. Lay fabric flat and shape to air dry.
