Our Shetland sheep have the finest fleeces and the greatest range of colours of all our sheep. This yarn is soft and relaxed and is a soft brown colour – a pretty mid-brown, the shade of the lightest coloured of our moorit shetland sheep but actually made with a mixture of richer moorit fleeces and some fawn and white fleeces.
We have this colour batch as Chunky and DK and a very similar colour in 4ply.
The Aran yarns are good for a beginner as they knit up quickly and are forgiving of repeated unpicking. They are also excellent for textured knitting with cables, ribs and simple overall-textures such as moss stitch.
We also have this thickness of wool in Chocolate Black from the Hebrideans, Cream from the Dorset Downs, moorit, which is a rich brown from Shetlands and three different greys from the Jacob sheep. If you want to work with colours, there are therefore plenty of combinations available to you which we think are particularly good for simple stripy patterns.
