Double-stranded Manchelopis made with100% Manchega wool from Spain.
Manchelopis is a soft and airy unspun yarn produced entirely in the region of Castilla-La Mancha, a land rich with history and the home of Wooldreamers yarns.
This unique collection was created to honor the Manchega sheep, a breed native to the region, and the source of Manchego cheese! Manchega sheep are most commonly raised for dairy rather than their wool, but with Manchelopis, Wooldreamers aims to highlight the value of this natural fiber.
Manchelopis is blended from the wool of two unique flocks being raised with the traditional ranching practices with compassion for the sheep and the lands they graze on. With one flock producing dark brown wool and the other white, this line began with a range of colors in a light to dark gradient by blending the two wools together.
Manchelopis comes in a 100g “wheel” and is a double unspun strand. If you want to knit it with two strands the thickness is 230m / 251.5 yds at 100g (DK); on the other hand, if you prefer a single strand you will have double the meters/yardage 460m / 503 100g (Fingering).
