    The unspun yarn of our dreams! 100% Manchego wool from two flocks in Spain, lovingly processed - also in Spain! - into delicate strands of incredibly soft unspun yarn. As warm as a hug, as light as a cloud!

    Hold it double for a DK weight or single for a Fingering weight. Also wonderful to hold with Mohair or Suri!

    • Non-superwash
    • 100% Manchega wool from Spain
    • Held double: DK weight, 230 meters per 100 grams / 251 yards per 3.5 ounces
    • Held single: Fingering weight, 460 meters per 100 grams / 502 yards per 3.5 ounces
    • Comes in plates and wound double-stranded. If you want to knit with a single strand, simply alternate them every or every other row - like striping!
    • Recommended needle size: Held double 5 - 6.5mm / US 8 - 10.5; held single 3 - 4.5mm / US 2.5 - 7
    • Unspun, single ply

    • Entirely sourced, spun and dyed in Castilla-La Mancha in Spain
    • The white Manchega wool is sourced from Raúl's "Las Banderas" flock in La Serranía de Cuenca. Raúl practices transhumance with his sheep, meaning he moves his flock from one grazing ground to another in seasonal cycles.
    • The black Manchega wool is sourced from José's "Jesús Giménez Diezma" flock in Los Montes de Toledo where they graze freely.
    • Spun at the Wooldreamers mill - a 4th generation family-run mill - in Castilla-La Mancha in Spain
    • Developed to minimize the ecological footprint - the flocks and mill are located in the same town - and use wool that otherwise would go to waste
    • Fiber & yarn origin: Spain

    We're always excited to talk yarn and knitting and answer any questions you might have!

    Wooldreamers Manchelopis Projects

    Building Blocks Drop

    Aimee Sher's Building Blocks Drop is hands-down the best drop-shoulder sleeve sweater I've ever seen.

    Like all of Aimee's patterns, this one comes with a ton of options: Full sleeves or sleeve-less (resulting in the perfect T-shirt shape), pockets, split hem, bust darts, just to name a few. Guaranteed to fit every body size and shape!

    Gaca Shawl

    Jean-Philippe Cliche's Gaca Shawl comes in two versions; one for holding Manchelopis single, the second one for holding it double. In both, the fabric promises to be so, so warm and snuggly!

    I adore the diamond texture pattern, and I love how cleverly the shape of the shawl echoes it. There are so many ways you could wear this - as a scarf, around your shoulders, bandana-style...

    I received the yarn and am truly excited to use it. It is so soft, unlike plotulopi (a favorite of mine). I just want to use it for the right project!

    Beautiful colors

    I just received my Manchelopis unspun. I haven't yet started knitting with it, but the colors are beautiful. I plan to cast on and swatch in the next week or so when I finish up my current project.


    It is a light and good yarn.
