This Shetland yarn is available in a number of beautiful heathered colours, expressing the landscape of Scotland and the Northern Isles of Great Brittain. The yarn contains some oil, loved by machine knitters and weavers, but it has te be washed after your project is finished. The yarn will bloom and feel softer after washing. It will make your project much more souple as well. The yardage is 190 mtr/50 grams and we advice you to use needle size 3,25-3,5 mm for projects like a sweater or cardigan. Shawls will maybe need a needle size higher and projects like hats and mittens a needle size smaller.
