Knitting in Shetland

Rich Fiber Culture

We think every knitter should visit Shetland. Inspire your work. Delve into the history of the people, culture, and fiber arts. View unparalleled scenery and thousands of sheep along with Shetland ponies, puffins and other shore birds.

Wool has played an important role in Shetland’s modern history. The islands are one of the few places in the world where wool has been continuously grown, processed, knitted and sold, for centuries. Every stage of production — from sheep to finished sweater — is evident.

A great deal of work has gone into preserving and reviving Shetland’s cultural heritage and wonderful museums abound, many rich with knitting and textile displays.
