Shetland Moorit Combed Top.  16 oz.  AR00012BSF.

Shetland Moorit is a lovely natural colored brown wool.  Moorit is the name of this particular red brown natural color that only certain Shetland Sheep have.  It has a luscious and  warm richness in color that can only come from the natural color the sheep grows itself.  I can't wait to spin some of this wonderful wool  for my yarn.  It is nice to touch and is smooth and soft.  It is a joy for spinning and felting.

Shetland Wool comes from a primitive sheep breed originally in the Shetland Islands.  It is known for combining light weight with unusual durability.  It has a large range of fineness.  This top is in a natural ecru color that can be  over dyed for soft color.  Or you can leave the Shetland in its natural color for spinning and blending.
