Jamieson & Smith 2-Ply Jumper Weight Shetland Wool 500g Cones
Note: Jamieson and Smith only spin cones when they do a new color run. They are toward the end of the current run, and don’t have many cones left. We will be adding more when they do! Due to Covid-19, we are unsure when that will be. We are occasionally adding cones when we can get them, so be sure to sign up to be notified by clicking on the color you desire.
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: We can also get most colors in 500g cones upon request, but carry a limited stock of some popular colors. If you need around 2500 yards (or more), this is the way to go. Cones are still sized with sizing oil, so the final product will soften considerably after a bath in wool wash. 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.
