This is a clean simple white from the white Shetlands. In the past there will have been more white Shetland than coloured ones in the flocks on the islands from which they came but in the south of England now, white Shetlands are less common than the coloured ones.
This is relatively plain alone but very valuable as a contrast for all the other colours we have in the same thickness! I have liked it particularly with the Tweed Grey Jacob wool. Browse the product gallery for inspiration.
Double Knitting is probably the most all purpose of our yarns. Our Shetland DK gives a robust yarn despite the fineness of the actual fibres. It knits comfortably with plenty of elasticity and give and offers plenty of scope for all knitters as well as being an excellent thickness for children to work with.
If you want to be creative with natural colours to the full, DK is the best yarn to choose because as well as the nine Shetland colours, we have it in Chocolate Black from the Hebrideans and three different colours from the Jacobs.
