All our Shetland Yarns are soft unlike the yarns that are imported from the Shetland Isles that tend to be rough & scratchy where after the sheep are shorn All the Fleece are processed together including poor quality fleece. While here in North America we do selective breeding to insure that all pure bred shetland stock maintains a breeding pool where the sheep produce wool of the highest quality & Luster for generations to come. Each individual fleece is processed individually so batches are quite unique. Each animal is registerd with the Shetland sheep society so you can be sure you are knitting with a quality yarn. The individual fleece determines whether it will be used for 100% wool yarn or made into our Shetland Tundra blend yarn. We take pride in the quality of of registerd stock & pride in the quality & softness of the wool we produce. Garments are lightweight & can be worn next to the skin !
