Item details

Shetland 4Ply 100% Pure New British Wool - Off White or Mid Brown

This beautifully soft yarn has been spun at the Natural Fibre Company in Cornwall using selected fleeces from pedigree Shetland sheep that graze on conservation grade land at a Wildlife Trust coastal site. It knits up well using size 3mm - 3.25mm (UK 11 & 10) needles) with an average tension of 24sts & 32 rows to 10cm but it also looks good using larger needles for an open lacy pattern. Ideal for scarves, shawls and fine knit garments and can also be used for home dyeing.

Photos 3, 4 & 5 show pairs of fingerless mitts which can be made from kits sold elsewhere in this shop.

Please Note: This yarn is also available in 75grm and 100grm hanks priced at £7.50 and £10.00 The 75grm hanks are ideal for hats, scarves, mittens etc. Please choose the total weight you require from the drop down box and if you require more than 100grms please adjust the number of hanks required. Quantities of 100grms or above will be supplied in primarily in 100grm hanks. All images of yarn show a 100 grm hank.

In order to keep your yarn looking nice, always wash gently by hand using warm water and wool wash liquid. Do not rub or use agitation. Rinse in same temperature water then squeeze out excess water by rolling in a towel. Dry flat away from direct heat.

Average review
I've caked up one of these hanks, no knots, the yarn seems even, no obvious thick or thin parts. I was able to knit a small swatch...the yarn is bouncy and shows good stitch definition. Each hank was slightly overweight. I highly recommend, these are sheepy but clean, a wonderful yarn find!
