Jamieson & Smith 2ply Lace Weight, spun from the finest Shetland wool with 50% Lambswool to make a smoother yarn and tame the Shetland “halo”.

Traditionally used in Shetland Lace haps and scarves, this yarn is also perfect for light garments such as shawls, scarves, wraps and summer sweaters. This yarn can be used in vintage patterns which call for “3ply yarns”.

J&S Note this yarn has been sold in 25g/169 metre balls for over 15 years..

Raveller’s note: The older put up of this yarn (sold in 1-oz hanks of 252 yards) had a significantly different weight from the version sold currently (185yd/25g skeins). This means that older patterns calling for this yarn will be completely off in their quantity suggestion if one wants to use the yarn currently produced. It may be better to try using the Shetland Supreme 2-ply instead. (Compare the yardage per gram -- it’s very similar to the old 2-ply laceweight put up.)
