Harrisville Designs Shetland Fingering

Harrisville Designs


$ 9.20




One of Harrisville Design's core yarns, Shetland has been a versatile workhorse for years. This yarn is not made from Shetland Wool. Shetland refers to the size of the yarn and not the fiber content. The wool is a blend of an Australian fine wool and a hearty New Zealand wool that gives the yarn it’s luster.

Shetland is spun more tightly on the spinning frames (higher turns per inch) so it is highly durable and will wear better and better every year. Don’t let the crunch fool you. It will soften over time and will become a favorite sweater or accessory. Pro tip: when finishing your piece, wetblock and add some hair conditioner to the water - it will make for an amazing finished fabric!

Good for weaving, knitting, crocheting. Fulls beautifully, softens and long wearing!
