Shetland Top, not Sliver. This is a storied fiber, Shetland is highly variable depending on where it is sourced. This preparation comes from England, the home of the Shetland sheep. It is a fine to medium fiber with a short staple length, low luster, and good crimp definition. It is favored for fine, lofty, lightweight hats, mittens, sweaters, shawls, and scarves. Beautiful color work is created with the array of natural colors. We offer four natural shades. Sourced from the United Kingdom. ½ pound put-up; top (combed); 25–26 microns; 3''–3½'' (8½–9 cm) fiber length.
