Shawl in Shetland Heritage Yarn

I recently knitted this shawl in Shetland Heritage yarn, developed by Jamieson and Smith.
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.
