Mary Macgregor moved to Shetland in 2010 to start a small business in textiles, and now creates heritage Fair Isle textiles under the name BAKKA.
Mary’s aim is to help preserve Shetland’s famous Fair Isle heritage by bringing it into the 21st century with modern takes on ancient tradition.
Collections are knitted on an industrial machine and dent to Bakka to be finished. The hand-knits are all knitted in Shetland by highly skilled Shetland women.
This Fair Isle cowl was inspired by the ever popular classic Fair Isle design with the trees at the ends. It is knitted in BAKKA's fully reversible fabric, and the more unusual lighter side is delightful. Note that blue is used here instead of the more usual Shetland black.
