Shetland Wool Week Annual 2023 *PRE-ORDER*
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 includes 12 very different Fair Isle, lace and weave designs from 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 design by Ella Gordon, inspired by a 1950s jumper from the Shetland Museum textile collection. One of our young knitters, Jenny Jamieson, created a beautiful old shale lace collar in marine tones reminiscent of the markings of a mackerel. Another highlight is from Hazel Tindall who has written an ingenious pattern which requires just 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 reports give a deeper insight into some of the people involved in the wonderful world of Shetland oo – all of whom play a part in ensuring its heritage continues.
