A beautiful soft and silky lace yarn in 1 and 2 Ply.

Scroll down to select colour and ply. PLEASE NOTE 'SHETLAND BLACK' IS A VERY VERY DARK BROWN AND NOT A TRUE BLACK.

 

This yarn was developed with Shetland Museum and Archives as part of the Shetland Fine Lace Project. The yarn is worsted spun from the natural, undyed colours of pure bred Shetland Sheep to replicate the handspun yarns used in the finest Shetland lace items of the 1800s, such as Queen Victoria's stockings and items displayed at world exhibitions.

The yarn has a distinct 'Shetland Halo' while knitting, which calms to a floating fairy-like haze after washing and finishing.
