From the North American Shetlandsheepbreeders Association: A very important characteristic of Shetland Sheep is their beautiful wool, upon which the world-renowned Shetland wool industry was built. It is one of the finest and softest of any UK breed.
This soft, yet strong and durable wool is a delight to spin and is ideal for knitting. Traditionally, the finest of the Shetland yarns, spun from selected neck wool, were knit into lace shawls so fine they could be drawn through a wedding ring!
Shetlands are a primitive breed, often having 3 or more wool types in one fleece. This is not the case with this one. There was no guard hair, no hemp, and all softness! Love the way this spins up! It can be spun fine for a lacy project, or is strong enough to be spun in fingering for socks!
Sold in 4 ounce balls
This wool was purchased raw, and processed by Morro Fleece Works.

Shipping & policies
I live out of town and sometimes don't get to the post office every day, I will try to give you an accurate estimate of when I will get your item(s) in the mail, but it should not be more than two days after purchase unless it is on a holiday weekend.
I figure stuff happens. I would prefer to be paid for an order immediately, but things happen and also, occasionally I have to send a revised invoice and I know not everyone is sitting in front of their computer waiting with baited breath for that to happen. In light of these things, you have up to three days to pay for an item you have clicked to purchase. In any event, if you can't pay for an item right away, please let me know by emailing me. I don't need details. I trust you. If however, the item has not been paid for after three days, it will be relisted.
