I have worked with Shetland wool for a number of years and find it a fantastic yarn to use for my garments. Shetland wool has become very popular in recent years so I am lucky to live here in Shetland, where I can easily replenish my stocks.
The wool comes in many many colours and varied weights and is a very durable material. It is also very warm and cosy as well as long lasting.
Taking care of your Shetland wool garment is straight forward. When you feel it needs washed, you can do so in a machine on wool cycle or alternatively, the garments can be washed by hand using shampoo.
