Simply Shetland is here!

Simply Shetland Silk & Lambswool is a 59% silk noil, 41% Shetland lambswool blend waiting to be made into a sweater or shawl. The silk noil gives it a nubby texture without the sheen that most silks have, and the Shetland wool is soft and tweedy. The 50-gram skeins have 246 yards, which will land you at 6-7 stitches to an inch on size 2 or 3 needles. We've got it in eight gorgeous colors, each of them named after a Scottish castle:
Venlaw Castle
Slain Castle
Culzean Castle

Ardvreck Castle

At $11 a ball it's a great buy too, perfect for knitting summer shawls or even a garment. Stop in and take a look!
