Travelling with fellow crafters is always a great way to get inspired and discover all sorts of fibery goodness. In the summer of 2013, a group of yarn-loving, knitting-aficionado friends from around the world traveled together to the Shetland Islands in Scotland. Their aim was to explore the knitting culture and traditions of these tiny remote islands in the North Sea.
Join Amber Corcoran and Jaime Jennings of Fancy Tiger Crafts, knitwear designers Ysolda Teague and Stephen West, and Malia Joseph, owner of Amsterdam-based yarn shop Stephen & Penelope, as they descend upon the islands with visions of sheep in their eyes. The result is their new book Wool Journey.
Malia is headed back to Shetland in a few weeks so follow along on our Instagram
