Harrisville Designs has been spinning 100% Virgin Wool Yarn in Harrisville, NH for over 40 years. Shetland is one of their workhorse yarns. The name of the yarn refers to its size, not that it's made of Shetland wool. Shetland is in fact a blend of Australian fine wool and a hearty New Zealand wool that gives it its luster. Shetland is spun more tightly on the spinning frames, so it is highly durable and will wear better as time goes on. Good for weaving, knitting, and crochet, it fulls beautifully and softens with each washing.

Please keep in mind that product colors may appear differently on your screen than they do in real life.
