    Manchelopis is delicate because it's unspun, but don't let that put you off. Carefully unwind your wool from the plate (never tug) to knit your stitches before unwinding the next lot. Should your wool break, simply overlap the two ends and twist (spit-splice) them back together and carry on. Once knitted, the yarn is strong yet soft!

    Manchelopis is wound into plates with 2 plys, making it a DK weight yarn. It could be separated to knit just 1ply, then doubling your yardage as a Light Fingering weight. 

    The Manchelopis light grey, medium grey, and dark grey, while named greys by WoolDreamers, these natural shades have brown tonal qualities.  

    Please remember that every effort is taken to represent the true colors of the yarn and that monitor settings will vary.

      Sheepy Softness for Mindful Knitting

      I never thought I would use unspun, let alone love it, but I do. As a member of an online group where a number of knitters were using Manchelopis, I learned before dipping my toe into unspun, how and when it was fragile (and when it was not), and how to fix should a break occur. Honestly, I do not find it difficult to work with. I do need to slow down - unwind (do not pull) a bit from the plate, knit, unwind a bit more, knit... Once knit these unspun strands show their strength. I am currently knitting a shawl using the yarn as it comes (doubled). The shawl has lacy bits so doing some SSK's, K2tog, M1's and YO's - the stitch definition is beautiful. The yarn does have the occasional tiny bits of nature in it and has a slight sheepy smell when you bury your face in it, adding to its character.

      Great soft great yarn, needs different colors

      I absolutely love the yarn. It is super soft and I can wear it next to skin. A single strand does break easily, but a double strand is pretty solid. Even the single strand is easy to fix. I can give it five stars, but I am not a fan of the color choices at all. I bought the pink and I’m trying to figure out a way to actually use it because it’s more like a bright bubble gum almost lilac. It’s fine for a little girl, but I don’t like it for myself. When I look at the other color choices, I feel the same way I’ve looked at projects on ravelry as well. The colors are either natural shades of brown or super bright and dark or they look like something that you would see in a child’s nursery, I may purchase the blue because I can wear that with jeans. I hope they come out with more muted variegated colors, like a muted mossy green or some autumn colors that aren’t, so bold. Then it really would be a wool dream:)
