Colours Of Shetland

Colours of ShetlandSometimes in middle of the North Sea it can take a while for things to get to us.. so although we have been packaging up all the orders and recognising the colours since December we now have copies of Colours Of Shetland by Kate Davies in the online shop, Yippee!

the Ten designs featured in Colours of Shetland. top row: Ursula Cardigan, Northmavine Hap, Puffin Sweater. middle row: Stevenson Sweater and Gauntlets, Puffin Mantle and Scatness Tam. bottom row: Scatness Tunic, Ursula Mittens and Northmavine Hoody

These ten designs are all made in our 2ply Jumper Weight which Kate describes as the flagship Shetland Yarn. Shetland wool is sticky (as in the fibres join to each other) which makes it perfect for Fair Isle colourwork and Steeking.

We love gathering up the different colours and imagining what is being made with our Yarn. If you make any of Kate’s designs we would love to see pictures, you can send them to our Facebook page or to us on Twitter.

What’s your favourite design from the book?

  1. All lovely but my favorite is the Scatness Tunic. I’d love to knit it with Shetland Wool 🙂

  3. Thanks Quinn, all these patterns are designed by Kate to be made in our yarn which is 100% Shetland Wool so it’s the perfect choice!

  7. I recieved my copy for Christmas and I love it! I think my favourites are the Scatness tunic and the Ursula cardigan. I can’t decide which to knit first… I will of course use J&S wool!
