Fair Isle Favourites

The Fair Isle knitting technique used to create geometric designs featuring multiple colours was established on Fair Isle, one of the Shetland Islands off the coast of Scotland. Fair Isle knits were popular on the runways last year with numerous designers including Dolce & Gabbana featuring them in their collections. As the weather turns cooler this timeless trend is once again filling the shops

Chunky knits are perfect for this autumnal weather. An oversized Fair Isle cardigan like Vanessa's and Diane's makes a great statement piece
