Ullcentrum 2-Ply Sport Weight
Product Description: Ullcentrum's Sport Weight is a 2-ply yarn spun from pure Swedish wool from Öland (an island off the coast of Sweden). This is an extremely versatile yarn, which can be used for a variety of projects. Swedish wool yarn is strong, soft, easy to knit with. It is also well suited for felting, should you so wish. Ullcentrum's Sport Weight yarns are available in a multitude of exquisite colors, both variegated and solid, making them a true delight to the eyes.
Please note: The standard weight of a hank is anywhere from 80-115 grams, but the meterage is always 300 meters per skein (most skeins are 100g). This is due to the different wools used, and the hand-spun-like nature of the yarn. Please read our notes!
Fairlight Fibers Notes: Ullcentrum's beautiful 2-Ply Sport Weight is a true wool-lover's yarn. It is definitely not for everyone! It is rustic, sheepy, and glorious. If you are used to merino, it's also scratchier than that. If you like natural wools and low-process yarns, you'll LOVE this yarn. It comes in two types of colorways, regular and gradient, in three types of wool. All three will bloom and relax and soften when blocked, like most traditional wools. We highly recommend swatching, as this yarn really does bloom: you’ll see the difference!
This yarn is made from one of three types of wool: regular Swedish Wool, Gotland (light and dark varieties), or Fine Wool. This means that each colorway is very different in its look, feel, and drape. The Swedish Wool is fat and crunchy, like a low-process Shetland. The Gotland is generally softer and thinner, being a long-wool, but it still has that rustic feel. Some colorways, like Medium Grey and Anthracite, are much fatter and less processed than the dyed colorways, feeling more like the Swedish Wool. The Fine Wool is very soft and silky, but still rustic. If you love wool that is not heavily processed, and that still has lots of sheepy lanolin, delicious smells, and some vegetable inclusions, you'll be delighted with this stunning yarn. You can expect a bit of shedding from the long-wool Gotland especially. We think this is one of the most beautiful yarns we carry: wooly, wonderful, and very reasonably priced. Try all the types!
