Storytelling Sweaters 2013

Intertwining fragile songs and overgrown fisherman knitting

Time-honoured fisherman’s knitwear with combinations of knots and cables recalling defining and distinctive stories.


Melancholic musical strains are legible within the knitted designs from British Sea Powers’ moving instrumental accompaniment to the documentary Man of Aran (1934).


The range uses natural Shetland wool to enhance the traditional, social and ethical nature of the project.
