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.

It’s a lovely garment but the buttonholes are far too small for the buttons. It was a struggle to undo them. I had to return my first order, because I couldn’t undo them at all. This was where Edward was so helpful.

I needed to replace the buttons as the ones on the cardigan were too big to go through the buttonholes

This cardigan is well knitted, warm and in discreetly attractive colouring. The only thing I do not know is whether it is moth-proof.

Fabulous! Just what I was looking for. Something warm and cosy for the winter months that is not in drab colours. If it were made in another colour mix I would buy again.
