Jamieson & Smith Shetland Supreme Jumper Weight
Shetland Supreme Jumper Weight is woollen spun, completely undyed range of 100% Shetland Woo. As this is an undyed range we strongly advise getting enough for your project at one time as dye lots can vary immensely. Supreme Jumper Weight can be knitted together with the Dyed Jumper weight - the weights and tension suggest it is thicker but this is due to the lack of processing meaning the yarn is very open and airy.
Jamieson & Smith yarns are made from 100% Real Shetland wool, from Shetland Sheep that are born and bred in Shetland. Each year J&S purchases wool from over 700 local crofters and farmers to transform into their quality natural yarns.

Caring for your wool: Handwash only. If cared for well, your wool will last a lifetime. Shetland knits are passed down through generations, with arms and necklines re-knitted and delicate lace repaired and carefully conserved. Store your wool in a clean, dry place with a sprig of lavender to keep your Real Shetkand Wool at its best.
