Shetland Heritage Naturals 500g Cone 

Equivalent to 20 balls Ė 2í200m/2í400yds

Expanding on the success of the dyed Shetland Heritage range this Natural Collection rounds off the palette, a range of completely undyed colours are available and work beautifully together with the original range. Shetland Heritage yarn recreates the original characteristics of handspun Ďwursití used in old Fair Isle garments. The yarn is replicated from that found in knitted Fair Isle garments in the collection of Shetland Museum and Archives. The yarn is worsted spun from Jamieson & Smithís combed tops to give a soft feel, and a smooth finish. The yarn is slightly finer than the 4ply we use today to knit stranded colourwork and Fair Isle. Instead, it gives a definition and complexity of colour and pattern that goes right back to the nineteenth century.

I love the feel and smell of it and can't wait to start knitting with it. I know for sure the garment will be outstanding as all the other I knitted using this wool.

Not started using this yarn but I love the natural darkness with so much variation to give a depth of colour unique with this natural fibre. It feels devine and I love it so much Iíve ordered another cone,so thereís no way Iíll run out of yarn. Fingers crossed itís the same bin lot but Iím sure Iíll work it out..
