Colours of Shetland

(c) Kate Davies Designs

We are thrilled to be able to announce that Fyberspates are now the official distributors of 'Colours of Shetland' by Kate Davies across the US and Canada. Her dedication to sharing her passion for Real Wool as well as documenting textile history has made her a favourite amongst knitters and fibre artists; something we have long admired. Her design work has a cult following amongst knitters who are drawn to its' intricate Fair Isle and motifs that instantly bring Shetland to mind. It is a pleasure to be distributing such wonderful book.

With its beautiful photography, engaging writing, and signature hand-knit designs, Colours of Shetland will inspire you with the varied shades and hues of Britain’s most northerly isles. The book brings the creative process of hand-knit design to life in an exciting new way. In Colours of Shetland, Kate takes you on a northern journey, exploring wild and beautiful island landscapes through words, projects and pictures. Situated in the rich context of the Shetland places, wildlife, objects and people that have inspired Kate, each design in this book has its own engaging ‘colour story’ to tell.

Through the pages of this book, you will get a taste of the heritage that makes Shetland one of the world’s most knitterly destinations, and be inspired to knit with yarn that has a genuine connection to the landscape in which it is produced. Showcasing Jamieson and Smith Jumper Weight, the flagship Shetland yarn with a marvellously varied palette, each project features the clear instructions and attention to detail that are hallmarks of Kate’s designs.

Alongside ten original patterns that are a joy to make and wear, Colours of Shetland offers the hand-knitter food for thought and a feast for the eyes.
