This yarn is a special blend of Shetland and Cheviot (50;50).  The blend brings out the best characteristics of both wools; soft and a slight lustre from the Shetland, and strength and bounce from the Cheviot.  The undyed colour is a soft warm cream which will work well with almost every other colour.

Sarah Hazell has designed the striking Comfort Shawl especially for this special blend and has chosen to highlight it’s wonderful properties with the incredibly textured design.  The shawl is an easy meditative knit and is completely reversible.  It starts from the long top edge and decreases with every row to the bottom point……it is very rewarding as the knitting speeds up as you go on!

The Comfort Shawl measures around 200cm (79 in) along the top edge and is approximately 55cm (22 in) deep excluding the tassels.  The shawl is knit on 4mm (100cm) circulars and uses 330g of yarn.  Kits will include approximately 360g of yarn.

Sarah’s pattern will be available to buy individually from her website too.

  1. Black Isle Yarns are gently and minimally processed by The Border Mill from real animals who enjoy an outdoor life (in beautiful surroundings, lucky beasts!) – consequently you may find the odd bit of vegetation in your yarn, these are easy to remove as you knit and, if you’re lucky enough to find some, I hope will remind you of the special animals who have grown your yarn!
  2.  I do my best to show the yarn colours as accurately as possible but please be aware that colours do vary from monitor to monitor.
  3. Your yarn should be gently hand washed in cool water using pH neutral wool wash such as Eucalan or Soak. This may seem time consuming at first but should soon become an enjoyable part of working with a gently treated natural product.
