This fiber is natural grey Shetland wool.
This Shetland is softer than Shetland has any right to be--for me, it's next-to-skin soft (people with more sensitive skin may not agree, but seriously, this Shetland will surprise you!). The natural grey fiber takes dye beautifully, giving the braid depth and complexity. It's a joy to spin, too!
This fiber can be spun any way you like for a wonderful yarn. Please take care while hand-washing the yarn or crafted item.
I try to photograph colors as accurately as possible. Please keep in mind that color varies from monitor to monitor--what looks right on my screen may not be the same on yours!
