Shetland Wool Adventures Journal, Volume 5 invites us to experience life in Shetland through beautiful photography and stories from some of the isles’ best writers, knitters, and craftspeople. The Shetland Wool Adventures Journal celebrates Shetland’s heritage, creativity, outdoors and adventure and allows us to escape and immerse ourselves in Shetland’s rugged beauty through high quality photography, walks, stories, interviews and recipes.
In Volume 5, we learn, from Carol Christiansen, about the lives of two 19th century schoolgirls using embroidery samplers housed at the Shetland Museum. Kate Davies talks about incredible adventures of Betty Mouat, a Shetland knitter who became a Victorian celebrity. Then we journey back in time with Douglas Sinclair to the era of MV Earl of Zetland, a lifeline connecting Shetland’s northern isles before modern ferries and get to know the story behind Gilly B’s move to Shetland and the inspiration behind her successful paper cut artwork.
