Shetland Lace in Natural Shetland Wool Shades.

Are you a fan of Shetland Lace? This traditional Shetland art-form which developed out of necessity to help Shetlanders make ends meet from what they had around them has grown to become, with Fair Isle, synonymous with Shetland Knitwear Worldwide; a true home-grown institution. Now more people than ever are discovering this art for themselves, creating beautiful scarves, shawls and christening gowns to pass down to future generations as has been done in Shetland for centuries. This was why we created our new Shetland Lace Collection in 2012.

This new collection has given knitters 9 new designs to try out using our Shetland Supreme Lace Weight yarns. These yarns were developed with the Shetland Amenity Trust as part of the Shetland Fine Lace project to revive a Shetland lace yarn reminiscent of the handspun yarns that would have been used to produce Shetland Fine Lace in the past. These designs have been hugely popular with knitting kits for them being posted out from us here in Lerwick all over the world.

So to add a little bit more variation to this collection, plus a few other lace knits that use our Shetland Supreme Lace, we have added options to the online shop for you to buy these kits in the various beautiful shades of Shetland wool: natural white, fawn, moorit, grey and Shetland black. This will mean you can create something which is even more unique and individual to you.

You can find these on our online shop using the following links, and if you do decide to opt for a shade other than that of the original, please make sure your desired shade is selected before confirming your order. Thank you.
