Bosie's New Islander Yoke Fair Isle Donegal Jumper, Made in Scotland

Photo by Salt Water New England

Bosie's outstanding season of Made in Scotland Fair Isles continues, with this new Islander.  It improves the scene without drawing attention to itself, my highest compliment.  Soft and sturdy with a lovely drape, the jumper pairs naturally with tattersalls.  It blends in with the landscape and brings with it a cool grey/brown, earthy calm and beauty wherever it goes.

  2. I am a bit confused - the design of this jumper is of Norse origin and not of Fair Isle or Shetland but typical Icelandic - The speckled grey gives it away as Donegal for neither the Norse or Icelanders speckle their vats of pre-spun wool. Nice jumper though.
