So Soft Baby Shetland yarn. All 4 skeins at an average DK or # 3 weight, 2 ply and 900 yards total. 

This is from a baby Shetland named Opal. It was her first shear so it is soft and yummy, with an oatmeal color. One of my favs, I love this oatmeal color on brunets and redheads, tho anyone can wear it. Opal is a friends sheep so I don't get to regularly have her fleece, but she is a joy to spin up. I was scaling my spin down to a small DK to show case the tenderness of this fiber.

I can vision this yarn in a shawl, socks, scarf, and or hat. Pared up with a pop of red, purple, teal or just kept as is, it is truly stunning. The slight diameter range in natural spun fibers make it hard to ever buy store milled yarns ever again. I would highly advise displaying in a wooden bowl for you do enjoy during the process.
