THE ORGANISER of Shetland Wool Week has hailed the first ‘Fair Isle Friday’ a big success.
People across Shetland – and further afield – donned Fair Isle knitwear on Friday (4 October) as part of Wool Week.
Sandy Middleton, who is head of engagement at Wool Week organiser Shetland Amenity Trust, said the day was designed to promote Fair Isle knitwear.
“It has been great to see the whole of Shetland really get into the spirit of the event with lots of schools, businesses and organisations getting involved,” she said.
“The Fair Isle Primary School sent us some fantastic photos of them all wearing their Fair Isle and the team at the Shetland Library really went to town wearing their Fair Isle and decorating the library in the distinctive design.”
