This yarn is spun from a natural light gray colored Shetland fleece. Shetland sheep have lovely fleeces and are one of the classic fiber sheep. The breed is on the endangered list of the Livestock Conservancy. This is a classic woolen spun yarn (lofty and open). A skein knits up quickly into a warm cowl, a pair of mittens, boot toppers, a hat or other accessory.
~220 yards per 100 gram skein
There are only three skeins remaining from this fleece.
