Shetland wool is my favourite wool of all. It’s soft, fine, and can be prepared into a lofty, warm wool. Shetland wool was traditionally handspun to gossamer weight to knit the finest Shetland lace, and still is. Shetland sheep are little, spry, and come in an incredible variety of colours, from deep browns almost black, to a natural off-white. Of all the colours of Shetland wool, I love the soft, gentle grey and as I write this I’m working on a spin of a half kilo of it myself.
When people say they are struggling with spinning, my first suggestion is to give Shetland a try, so whether you use fibre tools to create a blend or use it on its own, I hope you love it as much as I do.
British, non-superwashed wool.
