Due to popular demand, we now offer a brushing service for those who would like a standard garment in brushed / shaggy form. Please note we only brush shetland wool garments.
Gently Brushed - Lightly brushed once for a subtle effect.
Shaggy - The classic Shaggy look, brushed twice and slightly fuzzier, providing a mildly thicker 'handle' to the garment.
Extra Shaggy - Brushed three times. A very fuzzy look, individual stitches are more obscured and the garment has a cloudy appearance.
Quad Shaggy - Brushed four times resulting in an extremely brushed effect bordering on a felted look which inevitably provides a slightly more rigid garment. We will never brush a shetland more than four times. The increased brushing also lightens the yarn colour intensity, as it has an airbrushed effect on the wool. For die-hard shaggy fans, only.
If you are purchasing multiple garments please indicate which ones you would like brushed in 'additional comments' upon checkout.
*Please note that we do not brush Ecology, Soft Donegal or Voe Shetland's as they do not respond well to brushing. If an order is made for this, the applicable brushing service will be refunded and the Ecology, Soft Donegal or Voe garment will be knitted and posted as normal in it's plain format.*
