    Rare natural black donated by several of our black lambs. Yarn is lofty smooth, soft, yet strong fingering weight yarn that is a beautiful example of what Shetland yarn can be. A wonderful choice for not only socks, but lace shawls and Fair Isle or stranded knitting. (See the Fair Isle Thistle Cape pattern for an example of this yarn in stranded knitting.)

    This yarn was 5 years in the making, experimenting with mills, growing our flock to include several of the natural colors that Shetland is known for. Shetland wool developed through natural selection - is a combination of a cashmere like undercoating with soft-strong guard hair. This wool is unique in that it resists pilling and is a good wool choice for heirloom knitting.

    ***This yarn knits well on antique circular sock machines, take a look at our 1910 Shepherd Socks to see how nicely this yarn knits up. ***

    Can you tell I am excited about this yarn? This yarn is what I envisioned producing when I decided to raise Shetland Sheep....give it a try.
