Third Vault Yarns Ram Jam Worsted
If you would like to add your name to the waiting list for the next batch of Third Vault Yarn Ram Jam, please email info AT daughterofashepherd DOT com with the number of skeins required and we will be in touch when it goes into production.
With her perfectly balanced, dark, mysterious "sci-fi and fantasy inspired geeky yarns" I am thrilled to welcome Third Vault Yarns as our latest guest dyer.
Inspired by the Final Space cartoon, Lola created this glorious combination of purple, magenta, and gold overdyed on Daughter of a Shepherd grey Ram Jam Worsted yarn, which becomes a magical galaxy fabric when knitted up.
Alongside the standard Final Space skeins are a few with more of the velvety dark purple in them and these will appear as an option in the drop-down menu of the listing when it goes live.
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING
Final Space is dyed in limited edition small batches and because there is variation between batches we recommend you alternate skeins when using it in larger projects. For multiple-skein orders we will do our very best to match skeins as closely as possible but some variation is to be expected. The saturated colour does mean you may experience some rub-off that will rinse out; if using Final Space for colour work you may wish to rinse before knitting.

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.
