This product is sold out

PRE-ORDER Fair Isle Weekend today! Launching on November 6th, we expect to have our copies arrive from Laine early November. Due to an unexpected printing delay, we will likely be receiving our copies a few days after launch day, but we'll be prepping orders to ship and have them land in your mailbox as quickly as possible. As well, this first print run has now sold out with Laine, so these copies are all that we'll have available for the time being.

Please note... orders including Fair Isle Weekend will ship as ONE order in November, if you want your other items sooner, please place TWO separate orders. Thank you and happy Fair Isle Knitting!


Fair Isle Weekend takes you on an exciting trip to Fair Isle, a windswept island in Shetland, famous for its traditional colourwork knitting. During her many trips to Fair Isle, Mary Jane has been fascinated and inspired by the island's rich textile traditions, learning about Fair Isle knitting by looking at old textiles and sharing stories and knowledge around a cup of tea. Now, she has created a gorgeous collection of designs which she would take with her for a weekend trip to Shetland when a carry-on bag is all you take with you.

So I invite you to join us, this small band of traveling friends, sharing a little glimpse of the isle from my outsider’s perspective. I offer you a small collection in my own style of Fair Isle knitting, which I hope honors the tradition, even though my work isn’t especially traditional."
