red skinny tweed scarf

In January 2015 I launched a collection of skinny scarves and tweed scarves using tweeds from Jamieson's Mill, Sandness, Shetland. I was delighted to find this tweed as I have visited Shetland, and the mill, several times.

The tweed is soft and springy and has a beautiful drape, especially when combined with velvet. The colours are incredibly varied and rich and lend themselves to endless possibilities when matching velvets and Liberty Tana Lawns.

I was especially delighted as my favourite type of knitting is Fair Isle, and in particular Jamieson's of Shetland.

Please note: There may be some variation in colours from the ones shown, due to the availability of certain colours. Reproduction of colour on the website may also differ from the actual colour.
