This cosy red and black reversible Fair Isle headband is part of our range of traditional knitwear from Shetland. Sumptuously soft to touch, and made with superfine merino wool, the design is based on intricate geometric Shetland patterns and traditional natural colours.
Only slightly thicker than our other Fair Isle headbands and still very soft, it is designed by Bakka, a remote coastal croft on Shetland. Great care is taken to produce invisible seams and finished selvedges.
Fair Isle is a name given to the patterns and designs used by knitters in the northern Shetland isles region of Scotland. These designs are now on display in local museums and are in danger of dying out.
