Supreme Jumper Weight 2005 Shetland Black Cone
Shetland Supreme Jumper Weight is a woollen spun, completely undyed range of 100% Shetland Wool available in 9 shades. Some are as they come off the sheep and a number are blended together from the natural colours. Supreme Jumper Weight can be knitted together with the Dyed Jumper weight - the weights and tension suggest it is thicker but this is due to the lack of processing meaning the yarn is very open and airy.
Due to this yarns rare nature, we do not often have it on a cone, when we do it will be available here. As it is a thicker feeling yarn than the dyed 2ply Jumper weight it can be quite difficult to knit this on a Standard Guage machine, we would suggest using the loosest tension and knitting slowly.
