Gelato Ltd Ed Ram Jam Worsted
Naturally dyed by Helen Hickman of Nellie and Eve, a limited run of Ram Jam Worsted in a dreamy palette of ice cream inspired shades, available in two different flavours; 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 peach colours however you will find a crossover between all the different shades.
Created using a hand-painted technique which makes every skein slightly different. We recommend alternating skeins when using it in your projects or combine with one of our undyed shades for a colourwork project.

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.
