Hand Knit Garments

Here at The Handspinner Having Fun we have a brilliant team of skilled hand knitters who hand knit our bespoke patterns on knitting needles (pins). The patterns are designed by us for our wools.  Each garment is carefully crafted and unique as each knitter adds their own flare to the garment.

The designs are classic and based on traditional Celtic and Scottish designs and are renowned for their durability and style. We use hand spun, hand dyed and hand blended wools in a wide range of colours. Colour selections and blends are based on the stunning colours that the Isle of Skye provides us in every season.

For 2020 we have included a range of traditional Fairisle designs of ladies cardigans – both in Shetland wool and in hand dyed yarns.
We also have a collection of hand spun Shetland wool, traditionally knitted, aran sweaters for men and women. Simply gorgeous.
