In Stock

FC38 is a rust Orange mix.

Our Jumper weight yarns are 100% Shetland wool traditionally used to knit Fair Isle garments. Available in the full palette of beautiful shades originally designed by Jamieson and Smith, this yarn is our flagship yarn, and cannot be imitated in terms of depth of colour and spinning quality - although many have tried! 2ply refers to the plys in the yarn, this wool is a 4ply Woollen Spun thickness.

Please Note: 2ply Jumper Weight does not have names for shades, the descriptions given here are for reference only to help you. The stickers may also have a name on them, this is from the spinner and again just a reference, only go by the shade number.

I had bought 3 balls of this at a shop on the Scottish mainland whilst on holiday. I realised I hadn't enough to do what I wanted and decided to go straight to the company on the wool band rather than shop around. I'm glad I did. A perfect match.

Excellent fast service. The wool is perfect. I tie flies for fishing and find the wool has all the right qualities to produce realistic flies.
