Paper version - In English
The Shetland Wool Week Annual 2023, Volume Nine has a grounded feel, drawing inspiration from the hues, textures and details of Shetland's rugged coastline and natural landscape.
This issue features 12 very different Fair Isle, lace and weave designs by Shetland knitwear designers who all bring a very personal touch and depth of detail to their work. As always, Shetland wool takes center stage, with its endless color options, warmth and durability.
A Heritage model by Ella Gordon, inspired by a 1950s sweater from the textile collection of the Shetland Museum. One of our young knitters, Jenny Jamieson, has created a beautiful old shale lace collar in marine tones reminiscent of the markings of a mackerel. Another highlight is Hazel Tindall who wrote an ingenious pattern that only requires six balls of yarn and can be knitted into four different pairs of mittens; brilliant and clever use of yarn, design and math!
This year's reporting gives a deeper look at some of the people involved in the wonderful world of Shetland oo - all of whom play a part in ensuring its heritage lives on.
