Wool textiles work.
Wool, or in Shetlandic, Oo - has for centuries figured centrally in island life. Hardy, colourful characterful sheep have adapted over millenia to a challenging climate, and Shetlanders have always put their fleece to good use in beautiful, distinctive textiles ranging from woven tweeds to Fairisle handknits.
Photographed by Tom Barr, and with accompanying essays and profiles written by Kate Davies, this book is produced in celebration of the vital contemporary work of Shetland wool.
