Jamieson & Smith Shetland Heritage 25g

Jamieson & Smith Shetland Heritage 25g
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.

Patterns can be found in Jamieson and Smith A Shetland Story.

Wool experts, specialist dyers, curators and knitters have worked together to develop and trial Shetland Heritage yarn, which is worsted spun from Jamieson & Smith's combed tops to give a soft feel, and a smooth finish. The yarn is slightly finer than the four ply we use today to knit stranded colourwork and Fair Isle. Instead, it gives a definition and complexity of colour and pattern that goes right back to the nineteenth century.
