Shetland wool is very special indeed. It has a crisp, silk feel, and is extremely warm and strong and elastic, and has excellent water repelling qualities, making it perfect for hats, gloves, sweaters, socks – almost anything, in fact. It’s the perfect all rounder. In this fibre it is blended with Tussah silk, which adds to its natural sheen, and lends a little luxury.
This is a beautiful blend of olive, rose and gold. It makes me think pretty bowls of delicately fragrant dried flowers. When dyed on to this subtly humbug base this colourway has beautiful depth, and a lovely shine and lustre from the silk.
