Shetland

Shetland

Shetland fleece can be the finest of British breed wools and we select the finest we can find, so these yarns are particularly soft.

Shetlands also come in many natural colours and we blend to produce six basic slightly heathered shades in 4-ply and Double Knitting weights. They are normally in 50g balls, unless otherwise described on the Details tab on each individual product page.

The colours range from white, through creams, fawns to mid (moorit) and deep browns and also come in greys (katmogit pale to darker) and almost black. 

For the 4-ply, to add to the interest of colour work, we also offer a selection of gorgeous over-dyed shades of blue, plum, olive and turquoise. The colours can be worked together to create traditional Fair-isle patterns or more modern but subtle styles.

For more detailed information on TENSION/GAUGE, please refer to the 4-ply and finer, 5-ply guernsey yarns, Double Knitting, Aran and Chunky pages which give data on needles and swatches.

  • Caradon Hill Jumper

    This raglan jumper is knitted seamlessly in the round from the bottom up. Sleeves and body are worked separately to the underarms, then joined to knit the yoke. Short rows are worked to shape the neckline before finishing with a rolled neckband. All cable motifs are charted, and are worked over a six-row repeat.

    This jumper is ribbed all over so it has a lot of stretch. Intended to be worn with 2-4 inches of positive ease based on the relaxed gauge, choose a size down (zero or negative ease) if you prefer a snug fit.
