Harris Tweed and Shetland Wool

Here is a sneak preview of some new materials I will be working with to create some new jewellery pieces- Some beautiful colours in off-cuts of Harris Tweed and some gorgeous Jamieson and Smith 100% Shetland Wool from the Shetland Isles. It's technically a 2ply yarn but used as a 4ply and the colour range is extensive. I mentioned in my previous post that the yarn I have been using for Fair Isle knitting (although lovely) doesn't come in a wide enough colour palette and is also a little thick for achieving quite the effect I wanted, so I'm excited to start working with these and I'll be sure to post the photos of what I come up with!
