Swans Island Rambouillet

100% American Made!

This newest 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. Like the popular Swans Island Nature's Colors, there is some tonal variation within each skein for a subtle, but rich fabric. The sweater project pictured below takes 4-5 each of the 2 main colors and 1 skein of the contrast.

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