Jamieson & Smith 2-Ply Jumper Weight Shetland Wool
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.”
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: We can also get most colors in 500g cones upon request, but carry a limited stock of shades 202 and 203 in cones (the most popular sweater body colors). If you need around 2500 yards (or more), this is the way to go. We can also order a combination of cones and skeins, if you need more than 2500, but way less than 5000 yards. Special Order Colors: Don't see what you need here? We're probably able to order it for you! Just ask!
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.
