Shetland Wool Adventures Journal is a limited collector's edition book.
This curated collection of patterns, recipes, pictures, and experiences relative to the Shetland Islands are part of a personal project by Misa Hay, creator of Shetland Wool Adventures, an initiative to promote tourism and economy in these islands on the North of Scotland through the knowledge of its exceptional heritage.
The objective of Shetland Wool Adventures Journal, aside to bring you to know a bit more of the life in these islands so linked to the wool, is to support small Shetland business, the creative industry, and the local tourism of the place in a year as complicated as 2020 has been. By buying a copy of this book, you are helping these people follow their way of life and keep alive the heritage of a society so attached to wool.
Shetland Wool Adventures Journal shows through pictures and interviews the lives of the top knitters and craftspeople of the island, and at the same time, provides you with knitting patterns, touristic routes, and recipes so that you can feel like one more in Shetland.
In Shetland Wool Adventures Journal, you will find a wonderful reportage about why Shetland organic wool is undergoing a major upsurge in demand; a walk through Jamieson's of Shetland spinning mill; articles about past Shetland's woven industry economy power; as well as pieces less related with knitting and more with the island, as interviews with people who have moved to live in Shetland, reportages about architectonic and archeological heritage, and even about a famous TV series filmed there.
