Hefted Shetland 2015
Aran Weight 3-ply
100% Shetland Wool from Rockin’ Stockin’s Farm near Tofield, AB
Round and smooth, Hefted has great stitch definition and structure, lending itself well to cables and textured stitch patterns.
Like all our woolen spun yarns, Hefted is washed, carded, and spun at the Custom Woolen Mills in Carstairs, Alberta on industrial revolution era mill equipment.
Shetland wool is known for its wide variety of natural colours, and for its surprising softness and durability. Despite its rustic look and feel, it is not itchy, and is comfortable to wear. Because of its natural drape and lightness, Shetland yarn is excellent for lace projects and Fair Isle colour work.
