Made in Scotland for Magee 1866

There is a long history and heritage of knitting and textiles in Scotland. As with the Irish Aran jumper, Scotland has its own traditional styles, most famously the Fair Isle, named after the remote island, halfway between Shetland and Orkney to the north of Scotland.

Originally handknit, the intricate patterns of Fair Isle knits were passed down through generations. The vibrant colours came from natural dyes, similar to those traditionally used to create the colourful neps of Donegal Tweeds - indigo and madder gave blues and reds, with lichens, berries and flowers producing a rainbow of shades.

Industrialisation paved the way for mass production of finer, more delicate knits and so began Scotland’s legacy for producing the highest quality cashmere and lambswool knitwear.

Knit in the round with a seamless construction for extra comfort, our Made in Scotland pieces are crafted in all-natural fibres from luxurious featherweight cashmere to soft lambswool and offer a rich, soft feeling that cannot be imitated.
