Hand made knitwear from Spirit of Shetland


Prince of Wales pattern

Fair Isle sweater in Fernbank patternEdward VIII, when still the Prince of Wales, made a concerted effort to popularise Shetland Knitwear by wearing a Shetland "gansy" when he played golf at the Royal and Ancient at St andrews.

For one of his portraits, painted by John St Helier Lander, he wore a jumper in the traditional Fair isle colours of madder, indigo and "scrotie" (a natural yellow dye from lichen) mixed with the natural colours of the shetland sheep.

The pattern is replicated in this beautiful hand-knitted garment.
