JAMIESON & SMITH | 2 Ply Jumper :: ODD LOTS
We work hard to stock sweater quantities for you, so when we receive a yarn delivery with a new dyelot, we separate out the old and new.
Our "odd lots" are moved here and discounted while they last in the colors and quantities listed. All sales on odd lots are final.

Jamieson & Smith's Jumper weight yarns are made from 100% Shetland wool and are traditionally used in the knitting of Fair Isle garments. Shetland wool is an incredibly natural and sustainable fibre, and is world renowned for its fineness and warmth. Shetland Sheep graze on the islands' hills and beaches eating wild heather and seaweed. This diet, along with the not-so-great weather, makes Shetland wool soft, strong and warm. Shetland Wool is also very diverse: it's perfect for hand-knitting both Shetland Lace and Fair Isle, as well as for knitwear manufacture and weaving. Jamieson & Smith hand sort and grade their wool for for yarn and, to make sure that nothing goes to waste, the coarser parts of the fleece are used in carpets and mats.
Note... this yarn can also be used in vintage patterns which call for "4ply yarn".
