Shetland knitwear has a deserved respect worldwide, gained from many generations of hard working knitters and crofters producing some of the finest lace and Fair Isle knitwear.

Shetland Wool Week is an annual festival celebrating our wool and knitwear heritage, the farming community that produce the wool, and the islands' many designers and makers. The festival includes an extensive range of exhibitions, classes and events. These include weaving, spinning, dyeing, Fair Isle and lace knitting, as well as many other fascinating subject areas.

Events take place from Shetland’s southern tip all the way up to Unst, our northernmost island, which is famous for its beautiful lacework.
