Fiber line #301
Shetland Top Wool Fiber description:
Shetland is a soft and downy "shortwool" wool fiber believed to have origins in Scandinavia. Today, the breed is most often found on the Shetland Islands. The staple length ranges from 2 to 5 inches, 30-40 micron, and 50-56 count. It is well suited for spinning fine yarns, making it perfect for lace knitting. This wool fiber felts very well. In fact, caution should be taken when washing items made from shetland because irreversible changes can occur. Shetland fleeces are available in wide range of natural colors. Colors available in 1-white and 2-grey. See also Item #356, the Brown Shetland Moorit.
