Shetland fibre is one that is commonly used and loved by handspinners. I have taken Shetland fibres in natural shades and blended them together to form a smooth gradient moving from white to grey to moorit to black.
These soft fluffly batts are easy to unroll and section up, so that a gradient yarn can be spun up with as many plies as required. Shetland is not as soft as merino, but is still classed as reasonably fine with a micron count of between 29-31. It has however, a longer staple length at approximately 90mm, which makes it more straightforward to spin, especially for beginners.
You will receive 10 mini batts with a total weight of 150g.
Shetland fibre will felt.
