Shetland est le premier fil de L’échappée Laine, filé en France!

C’est un fil 100% laine cardée, dont les fibres mesurent 25 microns, issue de moutons élevés en France. Il se compose de quatre brins retordus ensemble pour donner un fil relativement lisse et mat, tout en gardant son côté brut.
La laine cardée se place au lavage et a tendance à occuper tout l’espace qui lui est alloué, idéal pour le jacquard.
Son retors plus rectiligne vous permettra de réaliser de jolis travaux de textures et de torsades.

Shetland s’adoucit au lavage, elle pourra être portée à même la peau sans soucis. Vous pourrez aussi y trouver quelques débris végétaux emprisonnés!

Shetland is our first yarn, made in France!

It’s a woollen yarn made of wool, with a 25 microns fiber coming from sheep grown in France. It’s a 4-ply yarn, in order to compose a quite smooth and mat yarn, but still raw.

Woollen yarn tends to bloom after wash and fill all the space around, perfect match for intarsia and stranded colorwork. Its plying allows beautiful textured and cabled knitting.

Shetland will soften with washing, so you can wear it near the skin. You will probably find some vegetable matter in the yarn.
