2021 Shetland Wool Week Yarn Pack Option 2 Da Crofter’s Kep


Out of stock


Shetland Wool Week is a world renowned celebration of Britain’s most northerly native sheep, the Shetland textile industry and the rural farming community on these islands. Shetland wool is a world class natural fiber, with a long standing reputation for quality, strength and excellence from the fleece to the textile products. Shetland knitwear has a deserved respect gained from many generations of hard working knitters and crofters producing some of the finest lace and Fair Isle knitwear.

Each March Shetland Wool Week announces the new patron for the series of events hosted in the autumn. This year is no different. The commemorative hat designed by the patron has become wildly popular. This year there are four color options. 

The Shetland Wool Week Patron has been named today as Shetland knitwear designer, Wilma Malcolmson, who is internationally renowned for her skillfully blended Fair Isle knitwear.

The much-anticipated annual hat pattern, which is now synonymous with the launch of the patron has also been released. This year’s official hat, designed by Wilma, is called ‘Da Crofters Kep’ and is available to download for free here.

Lost City Knits has put together yarn packs to enable our customers to participate in the celebration. Each yarn pack contains six shades of Jamieson & Smith. 

Option 2 shades are 81 (2), FC46, 122, 125, 82, 32
