Name That YarnThis is it....our newest shetland yarn blend. A lovely soft squishy 3ply, sold in 50 gram skeins. Contains 85% shetland lambs wool-15% qiviut-Musk ox, at $9.95 a skein its not too pricey. the natural colour is a greyish brown looks quite similar to qiviut yarn in its natural state so would make a gorgeous looking, soft feeling, warm shawl, i blended long 4'' inch qiviut into this batch so we should have a lovely Halo with age....yum.....we can also dye the yarns to any of these shades below if greys not your thing !
if you dont know about qiviut this is where it comes from this hairy bugger

This shawl is natural white wool from my lovely little Ramy-Boy... a really cute ram lamb who has the most gentle disposition ....only got 1LB of yarn from him so i havent got any for sale.
However all our shetland yarns are spun the same weight and gauge so the new yarn above will make the most perfect shawl. We just need a name for this lovely soft blend of yarn, that's where we need your help !
Send us your name suggestions in the comment section, if we choose your yarn name you will be sent the pattern and enough yarn in your colour choice to knit the shawl !
