Tension: 30 sts and 32 rows = 10cm/4in over Fair Isle pattern using 3mm needles

Expanding on the success of the Shetland Heritage range this Natural Collection rounds off the palette, 6 completely undyed colours are available and work beautifully together with the original range.

Shetland Heritage yarn recreates the original characteristics of handspun ‘wursit’ used in old Fair Isle garments. The yarn is replicated from that found in knitted Fair Isle garments in the collection of Shetland Museum and Archives.
