Natural Wool

Shetland Fleeces

Shetland Sheep are noted for their very soft and well crimped fleece. The wool is the finest of all native breeds with the softness of silk, the strength of cotton and the warmth of wool.

Due to their wide variety of colours and markings a range of naturally coloured yarns can be produced. This eliminates the need for dyeing and therefore retains the soft feel of the natural fibre and is favoured by those who prefer a natural approach.

The average staple length of the fibres are 3.5 inches with a lovely crimp that provides bounce in knitwear.

There is no end to the variety of  excellent items you can make from Shetland wool.
