Shetland Dream Tops

The Shetland Dream blend top is an amazing silky soft mix of Shetland wool, ultra shiny Mulberry Silk and a dash of fabulous Cashmere.

Shetland Sheep have lived on the Shetland Islands for well over 1,000 years, adapting to the harsh environment and thriving in the cold, wet climate. The sheep of Shetland were an important part of subsistence agriculture of the islands, and the rugged habitat and geographical isolation produced a breed that is distinct and significant. The Shetland breed likely descends from ancient Scandinavian sheep, and it is a member of the northern short tailed sheep breed.

Shetland Sheep are calm and charming in disposition, docile, and intelligent. The Shetland breed is especially prized for its wool, which is fine, soft, and strong. Fleeces average around 2 kilos and vary in crimp. Shetland sheep tend to be single coated with fibre diameter averages of 23 microns and staple lengths of 10 cms.

These Shetland Dream Tops are truly extraordinary to spin, felt, knit and wear.
