These lovely two ounce batts are 100% Shetland and sold in a set totaling 4 oz, making them Shave Em 2 Save Em passport sticker eligible! They are a monochromatic grad blend of my lovely girl Lizzy and a friend's registered Shetland Shamrock.
The wool is home processed from pasture raised sheep and will include some VM, neps, and noils. Therefore, it is more suited to rustic spinning and spinners who like a challenge and some nubs and slubs in their yarn. I personally spin it super chunky, ply with 3 strands, and then use it for weaving scarves and such.
Each 4 oz set is eligible for a Shave Em to Save Em passport Sticker!
The Little Farm: Our farm is the happy home of a small flock of scratch and dent, down on their luck, and ready for retirement angora and pygmy angora cross goats and shetland sheep. They are adorable and silly and sweet. They serve the dual purpose of keeping our non arable land mowed and producing high quality, super fine, luxury mohair and wool for spinners, dyers, weaver, and other fiber artists.
