Shetland Jumper Weight (4-ply equivalent) Mini-Skeins (SSM)
A 100% Shetland yarn from Jamieson & Smith in Lerwick on the Shetland Isles. All the yarn they produce comes from Shetland breed sheep raised on the Shetland islands, so it is truly pure Shetland wool.
This is a 2-ply “jumper weight” which is the equivalent of a 4-ply, giving around 440m/100g, and spun to give the effect of older garments found in the Islands’ museum. Perfect for our Fair Isle Hat designs, Catriona and Lindsay, they are ideal to use in any Fair Isle or other colourwork designs where you need just small amounts of a colour.
Each mini-skein is approx 20g/88m.
