This is a rewind episode from 2015 – we go back to episode 30, when I go to Jamiesons of Shetland.
Put the kettle on and join us as Donna Smith pops over to the blog to tell us all about starting a yarn business and her yarn Langsoond.
Katie – lover and dyer of British wool and fibre at Sylvan Tiger – gave me a pack of her gradient 4ply Shetland in the Bumblebee colourway. I was so excited by the colours, but also the velvety squish of the yarns.
I am a wee bit Shetland Wool Week lagged! Get a cuppa and come ’round for a catch up
More pics from my Shetland Wool Week
There is a very distinct Shetland flavour to this episode as I get excited for wool week. I also have a review of the Shetland Wool Week Annual and of Hazel Tindall’s wonderful DVD The Fine Art of Fair Isle Knitting and I have some news of Shetland knitting based trips if you can’t make it to wool week this year.
I will be at Shetland Wool Week and I will have my mic with me! Are you going to Shetland too? Bring your stories of your meaningful knits and tell me about your Wool Week experiences!
