Shetland Fine Lace

Shetland Fine Lace is a unique traditional craft practiced in the Shetland islands by skilled crafts people. The lace is knitted from single ply Shetland yarn which is so fine that you can pull a wedding shawl through a golden ring. This short documentary was commissioned by Shetland Museum and Arcives and produced and directed by Dave Hammond and Karen Emslie
