Story

Patterns fit for a prince with a comfort and warmth that everyone deserves.

Fair Isle refers to a traditional knitting technique that uses multiple colors to create the ever distinctive patterns we've all come to know and love. The style soared in popularity when the Prince of Wales (later Edward VIII) publicly wore Fair Isle sweater vests in 1921.

The patterning is named after...you guessed it...Fair Isle, a small island in the Shetland island group found in northern Scotland. The island is also known for its bird observatory, founded in 1948 and providing most of the island's accommodations. There's at least 27 first record sightings on the island, making it the best place in all Britain to spot rare birds. It's rather fitting then that these patterns are named after Fair Isle itself; wonderfully distinctive patterns to mimic the wonderfully distinctive variety of bird species you'll find.

About Grange Craft

Grange Craft started at a kitchen table in 1971, where Rose Cubitt began crafting quality Irish souvenirs as she raised her children. Together, Rose and her husband Brian, began to bring their goods to craft shops around Ireland at a time when most of the Irish souvenir industry consisted of plastic leprechauns and rosemary. Over the years it grew from a hobby into what is now a worldwide business, supplying Irish shops in Europe, the USA, and Australia. To this day Grange Craft remains a family run business, with daughters Rachel and Emma Cubbitt having taken over the business in 2007. Having introduced even more products and developed the internet side of the business, they carry on the tradition their parents began all those years ago.
