Excellent service as always. Very prompt and products as pictured/depicted on website.
I have used Shetland wool before, so knew what to expect from Ultra Lace Weight. The Shetland fleece and the woollen-spun construction make it woolly, rustic, delicate, crunchy, a little fuzzy ... I love it! (If you aren't familiar with woollen-spun construction, you may have seen it in Brooklyn Tweed's Loft or Shelter, although there are plenty of differences between woollen-spun yarns.) There is no vegetable matter to remove, and it spit-felts easily. It is slightly prickly, although this subsides with time (wear and washing). The natural grey of sholmit is a very slightly brown, heathered grey. So, in conclusion, Shetland wool is not for everyone but I highly recommend trying it out. If it turns out not to be your cup of tea, you won't have any trouble finding a new home for it.
The items were shipped promptly and email was appropriately used to let me know the status of my order.
This is the real deal of Shetland wool. Despite the lace-weight, it is springy when knit. The yarn varies slightly in thickness (remember, this -is natural fibre and not heavily processed), and varies ever-so-faintly in colortone. --- The yarn had no knots. The skeins gave no problems with tangling. The color, peach melba, was warm and exactly as expected.. . . and more! The skeins I ordered included considerably more yards than I expected.
