Island Shetland/Nylon BLEND
Our own blend of Shetland Wool and Faux Angora!
ISLAND MIST is a fusion of natural white British Shetland wool and Faux Angora (a man-made-fibre!)
Shetland is traditionally used for fairisle because the yarn has a bit of grab but we wanted to see if we could add a little something. Faux Angora is made from nylon and although it doesn't look like the real thing, it certainly does feel like it – it's as soft and as cuddly as a baby bunny. This fusion is one of our favourites! It produces a beautifully soft and even yarn with great stitch definition and a warm squishy hand. It's an easy and pleasurable spin and it takes acid dyes clearly with a slight tonal variation due to the nylon content.
