For a thousand years, Shetland Islanders have sought protection in their winter-harsh and windswept landscape. And what better than to wrap themselves in plaids woven from their own island wool?
But Shetland wool is not just a hard-wearing natural and sustainable resource, it takes dye wonderfully well: there is nothing like the subtlety of a Shetland wool plaid: performance and beauty as one.
Please note that most of our throws have twisted fringes. These three Shetland Windowpane Checks have the very traditional ‘eyelash’ fringes. These fringes are shorter than rolled ones, as you can see in the pictures below.
