Fair Isle Sweater

March 15, 2024

Fair Isle sweater is a distinctive style of knitwear characterized by its intricate, multicolored patterns. Originating from the Fair Isle, a small and remote island in the Shetland archipelago of Scotland, these sweaters gained popularity in the early 20th century. The technique involves using multiple colors in a row, with a limited palette per row, creating geometric and nature-inspired motifs. The term “Fair Isle” itself is derived from the island where this technique flourished.
