We’re excited to offer these new Shetland spinning sets!
Each set contains six ounces of Shetland top, divided into two ounce segments that were each dyed on a different base color of Shetland fiber – gray (lightest), moorit (medium – a reddish brown), and black (darkest, a mostly dark gray/black). Over-dyeing each of these natural shades with the same color results in a beautiful succession of colors that will be perfect for spinning into a gradient, a fade, or your own self-striping yarn. Or spin each one separately and use them for individual or colorwork projects!
We are dyeing these sets in four colorways:
All the Golds
Though we carefully rinse all our fibers after dyeing, some color run-off can be expected when you first soak your yarn after spinning, especially with darker or more intense colorways.
Recommended care: Gently handwash yarn spun from these fibers and subsequent knitting items in your favorite wool soak; air dry. This fiber will felt.
We make every effort to assure the colors in our photos are as accurate as possible, but please note that colors can vary from monitor to monitor.
