Marie Knitting in Fair Isle

Authentic Fair Isle Knitwear

My name is Marie Bruhat.

I’m a French Knitwear and Textile Designer living and working on the beautiful remote Scottish island of Fair Isle, Shetland.

Using the traditional techniques of Fair Isle knitting, I’ve created a distinctive knitwear collection Lea x Sea, now available to buy online.

My work embraces the authentic style of Fair Isle but with a modern twist. Each piece is made individually from my lovely croft house on the island. Within each garment you will find the colours and patterns of the place I love.

Alongside my Fair Isle knitwear collection, I offer a bespoke service that allows you to specify your own colours and details to completely personalize your Fair Isle garment.

Knitters amongst you can enjoy a tailor-made holiday on the UK’s most remote inhabited island. You are invited to come and unwind whilst discovering the wonders of this island and its people. Authentic Fair Isle knitting is taught under my guidance, adapted to your ability and attentive to your needs. Relax in the comfort, good food and warmth of our croft house and learn of the island’s knitting heritage and remarkable way of life. Find out more about our Fair Isle knitting holidays (information coming soon). Please contact me if you would like to know more.
