New from Swans Island is Rambouillet Sport It is a  part of the All American Collection and is 100% USA Rambouillet Wool.
   
This 2-ply sport-weight yarn was developed as Swans Islands domestic answer to traditional wools used for Fair Isle and other colorwork knitting. It was developed specifically with colorwork in mind, but it’s perfect for lightweight solids and SO MUCH MORE.
