BC Garn Bio Shetland  – Sh 26 Purple

Organic, GOTS certified Shetland style wool for all your colour work projects and so much more.. This fingering weight yarn, comes from mulesing-free farms in South America and is spun and dyed in Turkey. It’s a wonderfully sticky yarn which makes it an ideal choice for fair isle and intarsia projects. Available in 73 shades, both solids  and marled, I am pleased to offer the full range here at Hoop.

I knitted the 2023 Shetland Wool Week hat “Buggiflooer” using Bio Shetland on 3.25mm needles and matched tension. Post blocking, the hat is beautifully soft with gorgeous vivid colours…I’m looking forward to knitting more.

Other fabulous projects using this yarn are Trouville by Sophie Ochera  and the wonderful Big Birdy by Lone Kjeldsen which is next on my needles.
