    Jamieson & Smith Shetland Heritage - All Colours - Product Description

    Shetland Heritage yarn recreates the original characteristics of handspun yarn used in old Fair Isle garments. The yarn is replicated from that found in knitted Fair Isle garments in the collection of Shetland Museum and Archives. The newer Natural Collection is a wonderful addition with 6 completely undyed colours that work beautifully with the original range.

    "Shetland Heritage yarn recreates the original characteristics of handspun 'wursit' used in old Fair Isle garments. The Yarn is replicated from that found in knitted Fair Isle garments in the collection of Shetland Museum and Archives.

    Wool experts, specialist dyers, curators and knitters have worked together to develop and trial Shetland Heritage yarn, which is worsted spun from Jamieson & Smith's combed tops to give a soft feel, and a smooth finish. The yarn is slightly finer than the four ply we use today to knit stranded colourwork and Fair Isle. Instead, it gives a definition and complexity of colour and pattern that goes right back to the nineteenth century.

    Shetland Heritage Yarn is part of a collaborative project between Shetland Amenity Trust, Shetland Museum and Archives, Curtis Wool Direct and Jamieson & Smith (Shetland Wool Brokers) Ltd. Together we were inspired to recreate the worsted spun yarns in Fair Isle artefacts in the Shetland Museum's collection after the success of a project to revive Shetland Fine Lace in 2010." From Jamieson & Smith's website.
