Product Description

We welcome Jamieson and Smith all Shetland wool yarn to CeCe's Wool with these wonderful Katie's Kep kits.  Jamieson and Smith makes a 2-ply jumper weight (fingering) in over 90 colors.  Each ball of Shetland wool yarn is wound into 25 gram balls of 125 yards.  This listing is for kits that we put together for Katie's Kep a free colorwork hat pattern celebrating Shetland Wool Week (Sept. 26 - Oct. 4).  While the activities planned for Shetland Island have been cancelled due to the pandemic, you can still celebrate Shetland Wool Week by casting on one of these beautiful hats designed by Wilma Malcolmson.  Malcolmson adds, "Katie’s Kep is named after my mother Katie, who taught me these patterns when I was a peerie lass because they were her favourites. She belonged to that large group of professional knitters, without whom our Shetland colour work and lace heritage might not have been as alive and vibrant as it is today. This is my tribute to all the known and unknown designer artists of Shetland throughout the centuries."

Each kit contains six 25 gram balls of Jamieson and Smith Shetland Wool, fingering weight yarn.  We made some substitutions from the original yarn used in the samples.  Each kit is $25.00.
