“Our products are eco sustainable - our ethos is to utilise end of season/production cones of yarn (unloved yarn) which gives a unique product as there may only be enough for 2 or 3 pieces during manufacturing. Luxury yarns we love to use are Merino/Silk/Lambswool/Shetland wool. Our mini factory is based within the Bressay School and we have a shop in Lerwick's Commercial Street” – Roisin McAtamney of R.A.M Knitwear.

Fiona from ‘Fyon Fybres’ is a weaver, knitter and spinner. She enjoys weaving wall hangings, scarves and shawls, and often uses her hand-spun yarn in her work. She enjoys the challenge of cutting and sewing her handwoven fabric to make handbags and pouches. Her work is delicately coloured, and pieces are thoughtfully named after the locations and aspects of nature in Shetland that inspired them. You can find out more about Fiona’s work on Instagram, Facebook, Etsy and Isle20 website.
Grindischool Wool is a small business located in Bressay, selling pure Shetland wool. Dyed yarn comes in natural colours, and undyed white yarn is also available. Soft and strong, this wool is great for weaving as well as knitting.
