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