Hello from Rachel on Fair Isle

By Maggie Nichols

My friend Rachel lives on Fair Isle and I'm thrilled to welcome her here to The Woolly Thistle blog showing us a bit of her life and work. I hope you enjoy her video as much as I do. I especially love seeing her sheep and hearing their adorable names and seeing their eager faces.  Rachel will be a regular contributor to our blog so be sure to leave her a comment letting her know you enjoyed her video!


  • Hi Rachel, I couldn’t help but notice the cute dolls in the backdrop of the video.
    They look Hungarian . Where did you find them ?

  • So love your sheet and your wonderful knitting. please let us know when we can support you in your endeavors. Job well done.!

  • Really enjoyed the vlog-thanks so much. Got to visit Shetland fall of 2019 and absolutely fell in love with all things Shetland! Didn’t get to visit Fair Isle though so it’s wonderful to see you life. Thank you so much!
