  1. Swedish Gradient Dyed Thin Ull
  2. Swedish Gradient Dyed Thick Ull

    Starting at: $15.50

    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 Small, S (at least 2.5 ounces), Medium, M (at least 3.5 oz, and enough for two caps.) or Large, L (at least 5 oz.) , XL (at least 7 oz.), and XXL (at least 9 oz.) wheels. Material: 100% Wool Weight: Varies, Available in S (at least 2.5 ounces) M (at least 3.5 oz.), L (at least 5 oz.), XL (at least 7 oz.), and XXL (at least 9 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.

  3. Plötulopi/Unspun Icelandic

    Starting at: $9.00

    Schoolhouse Press introduced this extraordinary long-fibered fleece to American knitters nearly 50 years ago, and it is a favorite fiber used in many of our patterns. Unique to Icelandic sheep, this wool is warm but lightweight, with options for knitting in single or multiple strands. Knit directly from the wheel in single strand, this unspun is a wonderful choice for lace or sweaters. Work with 2-ply for typical Icelandic pullovers, jackets, scarves, hats, and mittens. Or 3- and 4-ply for coats and blankets. Material: 100% Un-Spun Wool Weight: 3 1/2-oz. wheel. Yardage: 300 yds. Approx. Gauge: Single strand: 6 to 7 to 8 sts to 1 inch or  Double strand/2- ply, 3-1/2 to 4 sts to 1 inch.
