Wowweee, this yarn is so lovely and when we were asked if we would like to carry Manchelopi we took our time and did some research and then said YES to the YARN!
Each 'cake' or 'cheese' of Manchelopi consists of 2 strands of unspun pencil roving and is 100% Manchega wool.
This yarn is categorized as DK weight but knits anywhere from fingering to Aran depending on needle size and if you hold the yarn 1 strand or 2 strands at a time.
