Ltd Ed Nellie & Eve Ram Jam Worsted
Naturally dyed by Helen Hickman of Nellie and Eve, I am thrilled to welcome this dreamy palette of ice cream inspired shades, available in two different flavours, each with two intensities; Strawberry Sundae and Tutti Frutti.
Using the Natural White base of our Ram Jam Worsted yarn as the starting point, Strawberry Sundae are the pinker skeins with shade 1 being lighter in tone and shade 2 slightly more saturated, whereas Tutti Futti 1 and 2 picks up on the yellow and peachier tones of the colourway however you will find a crossover between all the different shades.
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING
Gelato is dyed using a hand-painted technique and therefore every skein is different so you will find variation between skeins when ordering more than one, but each skeins will happily work together with another...it's quite magical! We recommend you alternate skeins when using it in your projects.

Ram Jam is woollen spun as a 2ply yarn to a worsted weight with 115 metres (126 yards) on each 50g skein. It is light and bouncy to handle, with good stitch definition, a soft halo and lots of character.
Being a worsted weight means the yarn is suited to working across a various range of tensions, and is just as happy on a 4mm needle as a 5mm. We suggest a tension of 18 stitches to 10cm (4") using a 4.5mm (US 7 / UK 7) needle but please do swatch and play with it; have fun seeing the different fabrics you can create by simply varying needle sizes.
Ram Jam encompasses everything Daughter of a Shepherd set out to do and be; that of wanting to put value into something otherwise considered worthless.
