Shetland combed top: Heirloom Carrots, 4 oz
Inspired by a watercolor painting, Heirloom Carrots is a vibrant blend of oranges, golds, and pinks, with bits of reddish purple and pale chartreuse. It's handpainted on 4 oz of Shetland wool. This combed top is certified wool from the Shetland Islands, grown by 700 small farms who pool their clip together and send it to be collectively processed. Shetland is a medium wool, not particularly soft but durable, with a staple length of about four inches. Hand wash in cold water.
