Jamieson's Shetland Heather Yarn is a soft spun, durable, Aran weight wonder. Considered the holy grail of yarn to many knitters, these 50 gram balls have 100 yards of cozy 100% Shetland Wool Yarn perfect for Fair Isle Knitting and Colourwork projects. 

The wool for this yarn is shorn and spun from the rugged sheep living on the Shetland Isles off the coast of Scotland. The fifth generation mill family responsible for this springy and surprisingly light-weight yarn have translated the flora and fauna filled Scottish landscape into their colourful, heathered yarn. Don't forget about the transformative powers of a nice wet-blocking for your Shetland project. The most basic of knits can become absolutely beautiful.
