We are excited to introduce the Shetland Wool Adventures Journal Vol. 5 for winter 2023.

Shetland Wool Adventures Journal, a celebration of craft, creativity, adventure and all things Shetland. Beautifully designed, presented and printed in the UK, the Journal features beautiful photography, knitting patterns, walks, interesting stories, interviews, recipes and some personal insights into the lives of the isles’ top knitters and craftspeople.

In volume five we learn about the lives of two 19th century schoolgirls using embroidery samplers housed at the Shetland Museum, by Carol Christiansen.  Kate Davies talks about incredible adventures of Betty Mouat, a Shetland knitter who became a Victorian celebrity. Journey back in time with Douglas Sinclair to the era of MV Earl of Zetland, a lifeline connecting Shetland’s northern isles before modern ferries and get to know the story behind Gilly B’s move to Shetland and the inspiration behind her successful paper cut artwork.

As always you can look forward to beautiful photography, 4 Fair Isle knitting patterns by local designers, features, interviews, walks, book reviews, recipes and much more.
