Discover the history of wool — a worldwide thread used in both decorative and practical ways. From a refined crewel drawstring pouch to remarkable dense felt blankets and chill-chasing garments—wool warms the heart and soul in so many ways! 


  • View the hap through an islander’s eyes and learn how to knit your own cozy and practical wrap following time-honored Shetland traditions.
  • See stunning examples of Jacobean embroidery from the Royal School of Needlework and create a project bag embellished with fine crewel wool stitches in entrancing patterns.
  • Decipher an age-old knitting pattern that has connected five generations, then knit a pair of mittens made hardy using a clever tip.
  • Share in the centuries-old tradition of Colcha, lovingly crafted with wool from Churro sheep for both the natural-color fabric and the plant-dyed couched embroidery.
