Occupation Handspinner, Handknitter and handweaver
Location Scousburgh, Shetland, United Kingdom
Introduction Shetland Handspun uses old established spinning and knitting skills to produce yarns and garments from soft handpicked Shetland fleece. Handspun yarns are available in natural colours from white to Shetland black and fawn to moorit as well as a variety of naturally dyed colours. Fine lace yarns can include exotic fibres such as silks and cashmere to enhance the drape of the finished garment. Indulge in a timeless Fair Isle allover or an heirloom Shetland lace shawl. Enjoy luxurious yarns knitted in traditional or contemporary items. Choose from smaller accessories such as mitts, hats, and scarves - or treat yourself to an individually designed garment. Bespoke spinning, knitting and dying tuition is offered from beginner to experienced levels.
