Take a Mill Tour
One of our core yarns, in over 64 colors, Shetland has been a versatile workhorse for our customers for years. This yarn is not made from Shetland wool. Shetland refers to the size of the yarn and not the fiber content. The wool is a blend of an Australian fine wool and a hearty New Zealand wool that gives the yarn its luster.

Our Shetland is spun more tightly on the spinning frames (higher turns per inch) so it is highly durable and will wear better and better every year. Don’t let the crunch fool you. It will soften over time and will become a favorite sweater or accessory.

Good for weaving, knitting, crocheting. Fulls beautifully, softens and is long wearing!
