Bee Croft, Fair Isle, Shetland

My name is Rachel and I run a 25 acre croft with hens, cats, dogs and 70 sheep on Fair Isle, the U.K.’s most remote inhabited island.

I breed pure Shetland sheep and have their fleeces spun into DK weight yarn, which I sell in several natural shades in 100g skeins. I also offer authentic Fair Isle knitwear, in both traditional and contemporary designs, hand-crafted by me here on my croft. Email:
