Shetland Wool Week 2020


Shetland Wool Week 2020

This years Wool Week took place online, but it was still packed full of events and excitement!

The best thing about having an event online is that so much of it can be reused and enjoyed later. I have summarised some of the events I took part in below, but you can see the full list on the Shetland Wool Week website.

Patron Video

I'm so lucky that I am getting to enjoy some of the perks of my Granny being patron! We had a great day recording this video and were just delighted with the results.

Watch the video on YouTube here

We also went live on Facebook to answer some of your questions, we had a few technical issues but got there in the end! You can watch that back here.



I had a great time recording this conversation with Laurie, she's a lot of fun to talk to and I hope it shows in this episode. It was so exciting to be her first ever guest on her brand new podcast and she has released three more interviews since!

Make sure you check this one out, we speak about so many different aspects of my business and my work, even people who have known me for a while have said they learned even more from listening to this episode which is so great!


Search for "Shetland With Laurie" wherever you get your podcasts or click here to listen to the interview.

A Shetland Beach

It wouldn't be a trip to Shetland without spending some time at a beach, and since so many of the regular Wool Week-ers couldn't make it this year, I took the beach to Instagram, and I took my friend Ellie.

Ellie is a talented coastal photographer here in Shetland and is now taking the coastal inspiration to her ceramic work too, more on the ceramics to come soon so make sure you're keeping an eye on what Ellie is up to!

You can watch the beach trip with Ellie on Instagram. Click here to view.

You can also view Ellie's Etsy shop to take a look at her amazing photography.



Anne made it to Shetland from the US, going through the 2 weeks of quarantine so she could spend Wool Week with us! (and to do a few other things I'm sure, but still I'm honoured)

It's always fun speaking with Anne so I was delighted to go along to the Wool Brokers for this interview. We talk all about my Amazing Benefits of Wool project and so much more!

You can watch the interview on Youtube here.

It wouldn't be wool week for me without teaching a few classes, and believe it or not, I'm still running these for those who were interested in classes for Wool Week!

There are still a few spaces for classes next week if you'd like to join us, go to to book your place.

I am also planning to run the Fair Isle for Beginners class in November, if you're interested in joining make sure you follow the link above and sign up to receive emails when new dates and classes are set.


I'm adding knitting kits to the online shop as soon as Jamieson's can send me the yarn!

Take a look at the shop to see if your favourite kit is in stock, or let me know if you'd like to pre-order, I can keep one aside for you when the yarn does come in!


How many Katie's Keps have you made? I've just finished another one for Grant, luckily Granny Wilma was happy with my colour choices for this one as well! (Phew)
