    RAMBOUILLET WOOL CHARACTERISTICS

    Rambouillet sheep produce a finewool that is as soft as its Merino first cousins’, but trades luster for an extra sprinkling of warmth and resilience. Rambouillet fiber is also loftier and bouncier than Merino, and we prepare and spin it worsted for Vale, a soft and springy yarn that yields delicate, feather-light accessories.

  • Gauges

    Used for lacework, Vale gauge is project-dependent.
  • Care

    We recommend alternating skeins while knitting to distribute the color evenly.


    WET-BLOCKING

    1. Fill a sink or basin with cool water and submerge the fabric in water, gently squeezing out any air bubbles so that the piece can remain under water without being held there.
    2. Soak work for 10 minutes, allowing fabric to become completely saturated.
    3. Remove excess moisture by rolling your fabric between clean, dry towels with light pressure.
    4. Lay fabric flat and shape to air dry.
