Fair Isle Belted Tunic
The Belted Tunic is knitted in Fisherman’s rib, a textured stitch with volume and lightness to wrap around you. Front and back are joined at the shoulder with a unique patterned band of traditional Fair Isle knitting, giving a subtle Fair Isle look. It can be worn with front panels crossing over the chest or hanging straight. The belt can be tied at the front or else be positioned & tied loosely underneath the back panel for more fluidity.
100% Shetland wool
Hand wash only
Colourways & Patterns
These are tunics that give warmth, that stay with you. They are made with love, honouring the craft and knitting traditions to be found only on Fair Isle. The palette of colours is taken from the land and the sea, the wildflowers and houses, to be found in the far north. All items are knitted on my vintage flatbed knitting machine and finished solely by hand. I use only traditional Fair Isle patterns with a purposeful embrace of modern colour and form. Everything is knitted in locally produced 100% Shetland wool, spun and dyed on the Shetland mainland.
Handwashing with gentle wool soap in cold water is recommended. All items need to be set flat to dry (no dryer).
Most accessories are in stock. All clothing is made to order.
Please allow approximately 14 days from ordering to completion + delivery time a bit longer than usual due to the fact that we are posting from UK’s most remote inhabited island!
