Ultisol is a dynamic brown roving made from black Zwartbles sheep wool blended together with cinnamon red Huacaya alpaca fleece. Zwartbles sheep are a rare breed and are not found in the United States; our wool is imported from the Netherlands. Their naturally black fiber has a red undertone that brings out the auburn color of the alpaca fleece.
The roving is used to create our worsted-weight yarn of the same name. The yarn is soft and squishy with a great springy feel. Use this roving to spin your own yarn in a custom weight, add a soft earthy look to woven works, or create felted items.
Please note: Due to the Zwartbles fleece, the yarn contains some kemp fibers. These are easily removed if desired.
