Shetland sheep can produce the finest fleece of all the British breeds so the yarns are particularly soft.

Shetlands also come in many colours and we blend to produce six basic slightly heathered shades in 4-ply, Double Knitting and aran weights.

The colours range from white, through creams, fawns to mid and deep browns and also come in greys and almost black. Each batch will thus be very different!

The colours can be knitted together to create traditional Fair-isle patterns or more modern but subtle styles.
