The future of Shetland's textiles

As the 10th annual Shetland Wool Week begins, we're taking a closer look at the encouraging future for our textiles.

Shetland's deep-rooted crofting, wool and knitting heritage is something you'll see signs of, wherever you are in Shetland. But it's not standing still, there's a vibrant creative scene involving our youngsters in Shetland PeerieMakkers, through the University of the Highlands and Islands and an inspirational creative community.
