Shetland Crew Sky

£ 59.00 Was: £ 150.00

This is a traditional 100% Shetland wool knit made in the proper, old fashioned way using only wool from sheep reared in the Shetlands. The herbridean climate means sheep have a dense coat, producing a relatively fine micron fibre and a soft handling fabric that takes colour beautifully. Many of our shades are a sublte mix of 5 or 6 different colours.

Knitted in a specialist factory, established nearly 100 Years ago in north Scotland, using state of the art knitting machinery and modern techniques to replicate the ‘seam free, hand grafted’ knitwear that has been made in the Shetlands for over 150 years.

We've gone for some great statement colours - Blood Red, Burnt Orange, Apple Green, Sky Blue and Heather - that take ours a little further from more mainstream Shetlands out there.
