Full color chart is for five colors of Shetland fingering weight yarn. Samples are knit in Jamieson & Smith Shetland Heritage and the colors used in the chart are Auld Gold (gold), Flugga White (off-white), Madder (red), Peat (dark brown), and Indigo (bright blue). You will need one of each.

Any Shetland fingering weight yarn is a good substitute for Jamieson and Smith Shetland Heritage but please take time to check gauge as it is slightly lighter than most Shetland fingering yarn.
