A new cloth from The Shetland Tweed Company
Each year The Shetland Tweed Company produces Limited Edition cloths, basing them on the land, sea and skyscapes of the isles.
The newest warp is based on the colours of ocean waves, those enormous breakers that roll into the beaches and over the islands' rocky shores. The Spring and Autumn is probably the best time to see the amazing colours in the sea because the weather and low light makes the colours somehow deeper and more intense.
Here are a couple of photographs of the new warp. Isn't it going to be exciting to see what the cloth looks like when it is woven?!
