This rugged cloth from Scotland has a timeless charm. Worn now by royalty and working class alike, it was originally the cloth of peasants. It is still made from the primitive Shetland sheep, often using wool that has been recycled and mixed with new fleeces, giving the fabric a wonderful texture. It is a good yarn for both weavers and knitters.
