Ideal (pronounced ee-day-AL) is named after the Uruguayan term for the Polwarth sheep. Ideal is a worsted weight yarn crafted from 100% Uruguayan Polwarth wool.

The natural attributes of Uruguay’s landscape and the dedication of our breeders have produced a yarn that marries durability and resilience with the unparalleled warmth and comfort on the skin characteristic of Polwarth wool. Ideal is a 4 ply, worsted weight, non-superwash yarn that is sourced, spun, and hand-dyed in Uruguay. It is vibrant, bright, and perfect for matching and colorwork; these hues and the amazing qualities of the base will bring endless creative possibilities!
