Description

Wool – or in Shetlandic, Oo – has for centuries figured centrally in island life. Hardy, colourful, characterful sheep have adapted over millennia to a challenging climate, and Shetlanders have always put their fine fleeces to good use in beautiful, distinctive textiles ranging from woven tweeds to Fairisle handknits. From croft to creative enterprise, wool remains at the heart of many island industries toda.

In the book, your will meet the fascinating graders, breeders, tanners, artists, designers, knitters. Weavers, hand spinners, knitwear manufacturers and retailers who, in so many ways, have made their lives in wool. Through photos and words, celebrate the vital contemporary work of Shetland wool
