Volume 5 out now! 

Shetland Wool Adventures Journal, created and edited by Misa Hay, former editor of 60 North and the Shetland Wool Week Annual, is launching now in celebration of all things Shetland.

In volume five we learn about the lives of two 19th century schoolgirls using embroidery samplers housed at the Shetland Museum, by Carol Christiansen. Kate Davies talks about incredible adventures of Betty Mouat, a Shetland knitter who became a Victorian celebrity. Journey back in time with Douglas Sinclair to the era of MV Earl of Zetland, a lifeline connecting Shetland's northern isles before modern ferries and get to know the story behind Gilly B's move to Shetland and the inspiration behind her successful paper cut artwork.
