Item details

If you want to read all about this fibre, I have a blog post on it. This is the same fibre as featured in the blog

So I won't repeat myself here, other than to say this is nice fine Shetland tops, with a good handle on it.

Spin up some of this natural plant dyed fibre for your next really authentic Shetland or Norwegian knitting project.

This is a warm grey with greeny undertones. Really hard to capture with the camera so I've taken a couple of shots in different lights.

Because of the way this was dyed, there are some very tiny bits of residue acorn here and there. I've flicked most of it out, but you may still find a few bits which shouldn't be a problem. The acorns came from the trees that are in the background of these photos.

I have included photos of 1x25gram pack of madder root dyed Shetland fibre spun up as double knitting weight. This skein is not included in this listing, but it shows what you can do with 1 of these 25 gram packs. It meaures 54 yards.

As usual, I always refund overpayments of postage, greater than £1 upon dispatch of item.

From my smoke free, pet free workshop.

    Average review
    Another lovely colourway to add to my collection, definitely a softer, tawnier colour with greyish undertones. All the plant dyed colours go together well so I am happy to include the variations within my stash. Great service and packaged safe and sound for travel to Australia.

    I shall use this fibre in my 2D needle felting project. All Sarah’s natural dyes work with one another beautifully. Despatched same day. Always fantastic service from Sarah.
