Jamieson & Smith 2-Ply Jumper Weight Shetland Wool
Due to breaks in the supply line from Jamieson & Smith's mill during the Covid-19 pandemic, we are out of some of their colors. We are restocking these as fast as we can. Also, prices for shipping have risen considerably. We are raising yarn prices to accomodate.
Jamieson & Smith are also adding names to their colors, so you may see the names assigned here changing as we learn their new color names. Thanks.
Product Description: 2-Ply Jumper Weight yarns from Jamieson & Smith are 100% Shetland wool, and are traditionally used in the knitting of Fair Isle garments. Available in a full palette of beautiful shades originally designed by Jamieson & Smith, this flagship yarn cannot be imitated in terms of depth of colour and spinning quality. This yarn can also be used in vintage patterns which call for “4-ply yarn.”
Note: due to the popularity of this wool, we often run out of stock of certain shades. Please sign up to be notified when a color you want is back in stock.
Please Note: If you would like more of any Jamieson & Smith yarn than we have in stock, we can probably order it for you directly. The average time on this is 2-3 weeks from the UK.
CONES: Please see our in-stock selection HERE.
We can also get most colors in 500g cones upon request. If you need around 2500 yards (or more), this is the way to go.
Fairlight Fibers Notes: Jamieson & Smith 2-Ply Jumper Weight is a very traditional Shetland wool. It has a classic, rustic hand and most colors have a lovely heathered appearance. It is perfect for fair isle projects. The skeins are small, but this is so that you can order many colors for fair isle work. Please keep quantities in mind when you purchase this yarn! If you need a lot of one color, please consider ordering a cone (see the note above). This yarn is a pleasure to knit with. Brilliant colors and a stiff hand that softens with washing make it an ideal yarn for colorwork projects. Highly recommended.
