A beautiful soft and silky lace yarn in 1 ply


 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.

1 Ply: 100% Real Shetland Wool, 25g, 400m/436yards, 1/16nm, 40sts&50rows = 10cm/4in on 2.5mm (US1) needles.

Gorgeous, fine yet stable wool.
I've swatched doubling with a dark yarn, decided to undo to try something else. Because it is beautifully light, the dark fluff from other yarn sticks if rewound. This is going to happen with such lovely yarns in light/dark, just a heads up if you are experimenting :)
I'm looking forward to the right partnering and pattern.
