Shetlandic Knitting -Trollenwol Marja de Haan, Anne de Haan, Hilly van der Sluis
This book is for everyone who wants to know more about wool, knitting and Shetland. During our first trip to this Scottish archipelago we were inspired by it's nature and it's people, but most of all by the wonderful wool given to us by the small, tough Shetland sheep.
This is the reason we wanted to tell the story behind Shetland wool and the knitting traditions of the Shetland isles. We wondered whether we still know what this represents, or whether we all refer to different things. The trail led us deeper and deeper into the Shetland hills to the source of the wool. Along the way, we gathered lots of inspiration four our designs. We wanted to reflect the landscape in our projects with real Shetland wool. We hope that many knitters want to join us on another journey, this time to Shetland!
