Little Rysa's Musket is light grayed brown fleece. Could be described as a light tan. Of course, the people of Shetland have a much better idea of coloring. Like the little field mice of the Shetland moors wool can change coloring sometimes every year depending on diet, weather, and genetics. Soft wool, heavy fleece of 4 lbs., staple length (long tips) 6 inches.
