So soft, super fine, and easy to spin, it practically spins itself! You can do anything with Shetland from super chunky to fine lace and it seems to want to be spun thin. If you're a new spinner wanting to up your game to spinning thinner, this is the fiber you want.
I've tried many different fibers over the years and the one I always buy again and again is your Shetland roving. This is so soft and easy to spin at all different weights. This is my favorite.
I bought 8 ounces of this wool in the Fawn color and it is nice quality wool. The color is gorgeous and would be lovely as a natural animal color in felting. I haven't worked with this fiber yet but I am excited to see what I create with it! Really, really lovely Color.
I have not spun up this beautiful wool yet because I want to treasure it for a bit. I am so excited to spin it though! Thank you for offering such beautiful Shetland wool at such great prices! I have a bit of a Shetland obsession, and now I know just where to shop to get my next dose of Shetland!
Great as usual!
