Shetland Wool Week
Da Crofter’s Kep
Please note: I made a mistake when I said there were 4 official colorways. There are actually 5: Jamieson’s of Shetland (which must be ordered from a US-based store if you are in the US), Jamieson and Smith, Uradale Yarns, Shetland Handspun, AND Foula Wool. (The Foula Wool option is currently sold out until the next clip is processed.)
Aister Oo and Laxdale Yarn also have colorways designed by patron Wilma Malcolmson.
Makkin in Shetland Dialect — This is the class I’ll be teaching with Viveka Velupillai of Uradale Yarns. As I post this there are not spots left, but we are hoping to repeat it!
