If you love a luscious, soft, squishy, sheepy-yarn then you'll love Shetlandia Sport!
Because Shetlands have such a naturally broad range of wool types and colors, it's a go-to favorite for hand spinners and fiber artists who love "bare naked" wools. Rest assured, our undyed yarns retain all the softness, liveliness, and gloss of the natural fiber.
The bounce keeps the final yarn from feeling wiry as it runs through your hands and it makes an equally excellent candidate for both lace and sweater knitting.
When knitting lace, it positively transforms, becoming airy and filled with light, ready to catch every little spring breeze that drifts by.
You'll also notice an excellent drape when blocked, which keeps its shape long after the pins are removed.
