Vale is a springy 2-ply laceweight yarn made from American Rambouillet wool. This naturally soft and bouncy fleece is worsted spun for a durable, elastic yarn with an even thickness and twist, suitable for whisper-light accessories and heirloom-quality lace projects.

This yarn begins on the Wyoming plains with 100% Rambouillet fleece, grown by sheep that trace their lineage to medieval France, where this offshoot of the merino was prized as the king of breeds. Rambouillet is even loftier and bouncier than merino, and we spin it worsted for a soft, springy, durable two-ply yarn that yields ethereal accessories.

Scoured and combed into buttery smooth, consistent top in South Carolina, the wool travels north to Maine for spinning at an historic mill and dyeing at an eco-friendly facility nearby.

Vale is a polished yarn with an even weight and twist, suitable for heirloom-quality lace projects.
