2-ply Jumper Weight

Jamieson and Smith


Jamieson and Smith Jumper (fingering) weight yarns are 100% Shetland wool and are traditionally used in the knitting of Fair Isle garments. Available in a  palette of beautiful shades originally designed by Jamieson and Smith, this yarn is their flagship yarn, and cannot be imitated in terms of depth of color and spinning quality - although many have tried! 2ply refers to the plies in the yarn. This yarn is perfect for the Shetland Wool Week hats. Both Tracy and Cameron are planning to make a Paul Klee Sweater.

Please Note: 2ply Jumper Weight does not have names for shades, only numbers. The stickers may also have a name on them, this is from the spinner and again just a reference, only go by the shade number. Although every effort has been made here to photograph the shade as near as possible, different screens may change how it looks.
