Fair Isle Cardigan
The Fair Isle Cardigan is a really easy-to-wear, reliable piece. Choose it oversized for a relaxed look or a size to fit more closely; either way, it’s a reassuringly warm and comfortable everyday garment. Buttons, pop-up or belt, your choice!
These are garments 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. 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).
Marie will be contacting you once she is ready to process your order and send you a library of colours of wool that she has in stock. You will then receive a digital version of the knitting swatches so you can choose your favourite. She will also request measurements from you so she can tailor the garments to your body shape.
