This Ashland Bay Shetland comes straight from the Shetland Islands. The authentic fiber is produced from a collective of some 700 farms across the islands. The collected wool is sent to a mill to be sorted, scoured, and processed into a roving that is superb. The small scale wool production has been in business for hundreds of years. The years of experience can definitely be seen in the quality of the Shetland. The staple length mixed with the wearable soft nature of this Shetland makes it ideal for any type of spinner, from beginner to advanced. The fiber will take dye remarkably well and reward you with true coloring. This is Top Quality sourced fiber consisting of the finer coat of the Shetland Breed. The individual fibers have a nice wavy crimp and produce a lofty warm buttery soft yarn. Enjoy our selection of various natural colors of Shetland Wool and save the more you buy!
4-6 Inch Staple Length
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!
