Jamieson’s Shetland Wool is grown and spun in Jamieson’s mill in the Shetland Islands off Scotland. The fleece of the native Shetland sheep used in the wool has a soft resilient texture which has developed over the centuries to protect them from the extreme weather conditions of their North Atlantic home. Jamieson’s Shetland Wool is renowned around the world for its unique texture.

Jamieson’s Shetland Double Knitting is a classic DK weight yarn. This yarn is very versatile and suitable for cabled, and textured knitting.

This yarn formerly came in 2 oz hanks, with 180 yards in each hank. If you are making a pattern written prior to 2006, or a pattern in Jamieson’s Pattern books 1, 2 or 3, the yardage will have to be adjusted to accommodate the yardage difference between the 2 oz hanks, and the current 25 gram balls. Be assured the yarn is exactly the same, only the yardage and packaging has changed.
