Shilasdair - The Skye Yarn Company
For designer sweaters, knitkits, wool and woolen yarns, handspun garments and felted textiles all using beautiful natural dyes... all Scottish yarns, pure Scottish wool. Eva Fleg Lambert set up a studio on the Isle of Skye (Scotland) in 1971 weaving floor rugs using spinning, weaving and dyeing skills learned whilst living in Turkey. Always inspired by a love of colour, a six month study tour of Africa further increased her textile vocabulary which, matched with a commitment to small scale, eco-friendly farming, culminated in the formation of Shilasdair. Using her own soft fleeced flock of sheep as a nucleus, raw knitting yarn was spun either by hand or by commission at Jamiesons of Shetland.
