The official Shetland Wool Week 2024 hat pattern has arrived.  Designed by Anne Doull, and named after the family farm, the design features a distinctive Shetland Ram motif. The Doull family are this years patrons of Shetland Wool Week whose dedication revolves around preserving and championing the highest-quality Shetland Wool.

 

As usual, we have a few colour options to share with you.  Each kit contains 5 x 25g balls (6 for larger size) of Jamiesons of Shetland Spindrift. For Colourways 2 & 3, where alternative brands of Shetland 2ply are used in the official pattern, we have adjusted the colours, using Spindrift as the substitute.
