The Shetland sheep are the ones with the finest fibre we have but this wool is made of a lot of it and it is well twisted: this is a substantial yarn of a strong natural brown.

The chunky wool knits up quickly, making it easy to complete a project and the fabric it makes is thick, giving a very warm garment. It is excellent for textured knitting with cables, ribs and simple textures such as moss stitch, which make the finished garment even thicker and warmer. We also have chunky wool in Cream from the Dorset Downs sheep, chocolate-black from the Hebrideans and a tweedy mid-grey from the Jacobs. These are all bold colours, good for stripes or simple patterns. For more subtle effects in chunky knitting, you can use two strands of any of the DK yarns.
