Shetland is a native breed of the Shetland Islands off the coast of Scotland, and part of the Northern European Short-Tailed family. Their fleece offers such a variety of options in both colours and textures. They often can be found to be double-coated but many are now single coated with a fine and soft crimp.
The yarn it produces is soft and luxurious with such a rich colour. Although it is so fine, it is extremely durable.
