"And here I've saved my favourite till last. Julia and her husband spend their days hand spinning, dyeing and weaving their beautiful shawls. Using a mixture of shetland wool and silk these pieces have the quality of treasured heirlooms. Recently Julia has been taking lace making lessons and finishing the edges of her silk shawls with this technique. She started mainly because someone told her it couldn't be done but as you can see, it can and has to beautiful effect."
