This yarn is traditionally used for Fair Isle. It is a heritage product sourced by Jamiesons of Shetland from the crofters on Shetland. In addition it is shorn, dyed and spun on Shetland too. This beautiful yarn supports the way of life.
Each ball is 25g (but a little goes a long way!)/ 105m. 4ply 100% Shetland Wool.
Guage: 10cm/4in = 30 sts and 32 rows using 3.25mm/U.S. size 3 needles
hand wash or dry clean, dry flat, do not tumble dry.
It knits and crochets beautifully, blocks well and I find best of all is not only easy to weave in the ends but gets softer on finishing and with use and wear.
I love this yarn!
