Daughter of a Shepherd - Ram Jam worsted

The natural black colour should be with us at Loop in early November. 

100% British wool from mixed breeds.
Worsted weight.

Ram Jam
is 100% wool that has been woollen spun as a 2ply yarn to a worsted weight with 115 metres (126 yards) on each 50g skein. It is light and bouncy to handle, with good stitch definition, a soft halo and lots of character. This is very much a 'woolly' yarn. 

Being a worsted weight means the yarn is suited to working across a various range of tensions, and is just as happy on a 4mm needle as a 5mm. We suggest a tension of 18 stitches to 10cm (4") using a 4.5mm (US 7 / UK 7) needle but please do swatch and play with it; have fun seeing the different fabrics you can create by simply varying needle sizes. 

 

Ram Jam was used in the beautiful new jumper design by Rievive.  'Spica' shown in Amirisu Issue 21
