Shetland Wool Week 2019 Sheep

Today I’m very excited to share with you another piece of work I created for the organisers of Shetland Wool Week. The annual, week-long event that promotes the textile and farming industries of the Shetland islands, started on Saturday and this year is their 10th anniversary. To celebrate, they asked me to create a full colour illustration of a Shetland sheep, which features on all their merchandise currently available to purchase in person this week. Any items they have left over once this year’s Shetland Wool Week comes to a close, will be made available in their online shop.

Shetland Wool Week Hats

Today I’m excited to share with you some work I did for the lovely people at Shetland Wool Week. As the name suggests, Shetland Wool Week is a week long event that celebrates the Shetland wool, textile and farming industries. It takes place once a year, during the Autumn and the organisers approached me earlier this year to ask if I would be interested in creating a celebratory print for 2019 – their 10th year.

For the past 6 out of 10 years a designer has created a knitting pattern for a hat that anyone anywhere in the world can use to feel a part of the celebrations, whether they’re attending the event in person or not.

My illustration of these 6 hats has been made into a beautiful A3 giclee print and is currently available to purchase through the Shetland Wool Week online shop but numbers are strictly limited so if you would like one, please order now to avoid missing out.
