Please Note: This shade is dyed Shetland black which is dark brown. For a solid black please order shade 77.

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.

Great yarn, but dark brown, not black. Turns out the colour works better on my project than black would have, but I was surprised to see that it is actually a shed of dark brown.
