Innovative in our origins in the
early 1970's, at Jumbuk Wools we continued to produce our excellent products until recently. Our unique Jumbuk Wool was achieved by washing the fleece lightly, not subjecting it to the harsher
chemical processes of many commercial wools.
The natural lanolin remaining in the wool enhances the natural properties of the fibre, giving extra wear, warmth and water
resistancy, while retaining an overall softness.
At Jumbuk Wools we have always featured the natural undyed colours of JUMBUK CREAM (creamy-white - LH top), JUMBUK SILVER
(light-grey - RH top), JUMBUK SLATE (darker-grey - LH lower), and JUMBUK CHOCOLATE (charcoal/chocolate - RH lower).
We also stock a spectacular range of hand-dyed, multi-toned colours of Jumbuk Wool and will send samples of specific colour-blends on request.

PLY AND TENSION DETAILS
Jumbuk Wool handknitting yarns are slightly thicker then many other commercial yarns
so we tend to refer to them as Gold, Blue and Brown Label, not ply, to avoid confusion with knitting patterns using other yarns.
The colour of the printing on the ball label denotes the wool thickness.
"Gold Label" is approx. 5 ply.
Suggested tension is 24 sts and 32 rows to 10 cm using 3.75 mm ndls, in Stocking stitch.
"Blue"Label" is approx 8 ply.
Suggested tension is 20 sts and 26 rows to 10 cm using 4.5 mm ndls, in Stocking stitch.
"Brown Label" is approx 12 ply.
Suggested tension is 16 sts and 21 rows to 10 cm using 5.5 mm ndls, in Stocking stitch.
We have a range of pattern books and pattern leaflets suitable for our wools - projects include jumpers,
cardigans, vests and sleeveless pullovers, shawls, beanies, scarves, and socks, as well as some special ideas including "Kangaroo boots" and a "Curly-Tail Possum scarf". (we're hoping to get
pictures on line soon for all our patterns)
