Shetland Sheep have for generations been noted for their very soft and well crimped fleece. The wool is the finest of all native breeds and shows an amazing variety of colours and markings. There are 11 main whole colours and 30 recognised patterns and markings. The average staple length is 3.5 inches. The amount of crimp varies, and is important in providing the 'bounce' required for knitwear. 

  • Premium Quality: Sourced from the Shetland Isles, the fleeces are sorted before spinning and only the finest wool is spun into knitting wool.
  • Non-superwash: Jamieson's Spindrift is a non-superwash wool, and the colors blend beautifully.  In stranded colorwork the natural non-superwash wool allows the floats to felt slightly, providing extra warmth and durability.
  • Convenient Skein Size: Each skein weighs 25 grams and contains approximately 115 yards, providing a convenient size for stranded-colorwork projects.
  • Special Orders Available: If you need a color we're not displaying in stock, Sweet Meadow Knits offers the option to special order additional colors.  (Back-ordered colors may not be available from Shetland until the next fleeces are processed).
  • Easy Care: Maintain the beauty of your handmade creations with simple care instructions—wash by hand in cool water and lay flat to dry for best results.
  • Versatile Application: Whether you're knitting sweaters, socks, or hats, this fingering weight yarn is suitable for all your color-stranded projects.
  • Trusted Source: Sweet Meadow Knits carries a range of colors, ensuring you have access to a diverse selection for your knitting needs. 
  • True-to-life colors: Natural light photography illuminates the yarn's details, allowing you to make informed decisions with confidence.
  • Customer Satisfaction: Experience the joy of working with authentic Shetland wool yarn, backed by Sweet Meadow Knits' commitment to quality and customer service.
  • Multi-skein-images: Additional multi-skein views have been added to the thumbnail carousel because we think it's helpful to see the yarn from another perspective.  Clicking the multi-skein image is informational only, and does not select the color. 
  • Select yarns: for your convenience, there are three ways to select yarn.
    • use the dropdown color-picker above
    • click on a close-up in the thumbnail carousel
    • for multiple colors use the color options grid below to add all colors selected to your cart at one time.
