I handspun this rustic yarn with love, from 80% organic Shetland wool and 20% mulberry silk.

This yarn is medium soft in handle, it would be great for making beanies, mittens and socks, the mulberry silk adds softness and makes this yarn extra strong. This also means that the fabric made from this yarn would be able to stand up to quite a bit of wear and would be more durable than one made of finer wool.

Shetland sheep live on the northernmost islands of Britain and have lived in this environment for over a thousand years.

Help support genetic diversity by purchasing yarn made from the wool of this endangered sheep breed.

Wool grown by Shetland sheep comes in 11 different natural colours!
