Description
Fair Isle knitting originated from the eponymous Scottish Island situated between Orkney and Shetland, where there is a strong tradition for knitwear with knitters archiving their individual patterns. Loosely fitted, collared style with button front fastening and two front pockets. There is evidence that the distinctive design of Fair Isle knitted clothes are influenced by Scandinavia. Varied colours of Shetland wool have been a feature of knitting from this region since the 19th century. They came partly from the different breeds of sheep, but also dyes: originally madder and indigo gave red and blue, while lichens produced red, brown, orange and purple.

A lovely jumper, but FairIsle pattern, not made in Scotland.

I love the cardigan - it has beautiful colours and is very warm. However, I bought a medium and would say it is actually quite large on me (UK size 12/14) - it is also longer than I expected.

A beautifully crafted garment - something to snuggle into on a winter's day.

Cardigan well produced but I question the appropriateness of describing it as a Fair Isle Cardigan . It would be more appropriate to describe it as in the Fair Isle style. I understand most Fair Isle hand knitted garments are in double knitting wool and are therefore not as thick and bulky as this garment. I also wonder how genuine the pattern is.
Hi there, thank you for your valuable feedback on our Fair Isle Hand-Knitted Cardigan. I have spoken to our buying team who have confirmed that this is hand-knitted and made from 100% wool cardigan, inspired by a Fair Isle pattern. Kind regards, Montana.
