Jamieson & Smith
Jamieson & Smith Shetland Aran Worsted
Product Description: Created for Shetland Wool Week, 2014, this range of yarn expands on Jamieson & Smith's Heritage Range. Aran weight and worsted spun, this super soft wool is perfect for cables and colorwork.
Shetland Heritage yarn recreates the original characteristics of handspun ‘wursit’ used in old Fair Isle garments. The yarn is replicated from that found in knitted Fair Isle garments in the collection of Shetland Museum and Archives. Wool experts, specialist dyers, curators and knitters have worked together to develop and trial Shetland Heritage yarn, which is worsted spun from Jamieson & Smith’s combed tops to give a soft feel, and a smooth finish.
Weight: Aran weight
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. Email and ask.
Fairlight Fibers Notes: Jamieson & Smith Shetland Aran Weight is a perfect sweater yarn, lofty and soft almost like a single-ply, with a very loose twist. The smoosh factor is much higher than most Shetland wool. Delightful!
