We love this photo of our talented SWW patron @shetlandhandspun (on the left) at the @shetlandwoolweek Makers’ Market. Her naturally dyed handspun yarn is looking pretty wonderful too. 💛🍂

Lace and blues. We captured this image at the @shetland_textile_museum Touchy Feely event during Shetland Wool Week, where members of the public had the rare opportunity to touch items from the main Collection.

​Well, that's Shetland Wool Week over now for another year, and what a fantastic time we've had. Nine days packed full of exhibitions, classes, events, talks and tours - all celebrating our wonderful textile heritage. Thank you to everyone who travelled far and wide to be with us 🌍, thanks to all our tutors and volunteers - all who were involved - for making it so special. We have enjoyed every minute and we hope you did too.
If you attended SWW this year then please take a few minutes to fill out our 2018 surveys, a general one and another on class feedback, you'll find them in the link in our bio.

Thanks!! #shetlandwoolweek2018 #shetlandwoolweek #shetland #knittersofinstagram

The Makers’ Market is in full swing today at the Anderson High School. It’s open until 4pm. Teas, cake, soup and bannocks too 😊

This year we’ve included a Lerwick Walking Tour (complete with #jimmyperez highlights) and Taste of Shetland. Last night’s event was a great success! Thanks for hosting the meal @peerieshopcafe. Empty plates all round!

There’s still tickets left this Friday to @shetlandhelen FISS KNIT class. @julietbernard posted the following after taking the class today:
Had the most inspiring day today with Helen Robertson learning FISS knitting where you can easily incorporate three colours in your colourwork. Genius! Thanks so much to @shetlandwoolweek for putting on this event.

Loving the shades starting to come through in the Natural Dye Indigo workshop with @aurinkokehra. #shetlandwool #naturaldye

How wonderful are the colours of this #merriedancerstoorie? Loving the coordinated pompom too. Thanks Liza for modelling her hat. She’s joined us all the way from South Africa!

Save the date of our Makers’ Market, it's on Sat 29 September, 11am – 4pm at the Anderson High School.🌟 This is always a treat on the last Saturday of Wool Week, it’s a great chance to meet local makers (and some visiting ones too) and purchase some beautiful Shetland wool pieces, many of which are not available in shops. There will be around 30 stalls, click the link in our profile to see the full list of stall holders.
