Shetland Lace

Shetland 1-ply lace shawl Shetland lace was the mainstay of the Shetland knitwear industry during the nineteenth century. Arthur Anderson, one of the founders of P & 0 Shipping Company, introduced Shetland shawls to Queen Victoria and from there it became de rigeur for ladies of fashion to wear Shetland shawls and stockings.

Shetland 2-ply shawl

The finest, cobweb lace is used in heirloom shawls and delicate lace scarves and is so light and fine that shawls are reputed to pass through a wedding ring.
