We were immediately smitten by Swedish Gradient Dyed Ull and its brilliant colors. It is put up in the same manner (wheels) as our solid-color Unspun Icelandic wool. And a single strand of SGU is identical in weight to 2-strands of Unspun Icelandic. Perf! The 100% wool (from 'local' Swedish sheep) is washed in an eco-friendly manner, and still retains a bit of lanolin. The dyeing process is their own secret recipe. This SGU is prepared on a carding machine that produces only a soft thick strand. To quote my mill-connection, Ann: "It is lovely and very popular with knitters, but the machine is impossible to control. The put up can be of different weights. It is a work of humans." Indeed, the wool is put up in varying weights, so we have classified the wool into Medium (at least 3.5 oz, and enough for two caps.) or Large (at least 5.5 oz.) wheels. Material: 100% Wool Weight: Varies, Available in Medium (at least 3.5 oz.), and Large (at least 5.5 oz.) Yardage: Varies based on size; a medium wheel should allow you to knit at least two caps. Approx. Gauge: The test knitting we have done so far has yielded ±4 sts to 1", combined with Unspun Icelandic in color-pattern. Limited Quantities.
