Shetland Heritage yarn recreates the original characteristics of handspun ‘wursit’ used in old Fair Isle garments. The yarn is replicated from that found in knitted Fair Isle garments in the collection of Shetland Museum and Archives. 

The yarn is slightly finer than the J&S jumper weight used in Saudade and Cruden. 

Please note that the pattern is part of the Knitworthy 4 collection or you can choose to include a print copy of the pattern.
