2ply ShetlandLace Knitting Yarn 25g balls in Black
Jamieson & Smith Shetland 2ply Lace yarn 25g balls. Jamieson & Smith 2ply lace weight yarn, spun from the finest Shetland wool with a tiny touch of Lambswool to make a smoother yarn and tame the Shetland "halo". Traditionally used in Shetland Lace haps and scarves, this yarn is also perfect for light garments such as shawls, scarves, wraps and summer sweaters. It is best used with Shetland knitting patterns but it can also be used in vintage patterns which call for "3ply yarns". So please knit a tension square first. Composition: Shetland wool with a touch of lambswool Weight: 25g ball Yardage: 169m/185yds per ball, Needles: 2mm - 3.75mm (depending on pattern) This yarn can feel a little harsh when knitting with it, but it is a well known fact that pure wool softens considerably with washing, and this is particularly true of Jamieson & Smith yarns. It can also be felted.
