Nielanell Knitwear Design


Nielanell Design Studio, Hoswick, Sandwick, Shetland, ZE2 9HL

    Visit local designer Nielanell at her studio and view her contemporary knitwear.

    Nielanell’s innovative and contemporary knitwear - known as ‘artwear’ -  is designed and made in Shetland. She transforms highly original knitted textiles into flattering, simple styles. Visit her studio and try on the unique upside-down jacket or throw on the grown-up hoodie - knitwear with attitude.

    Nielanell's studio is a welcoming oasis of sumptuous colour and pattern. Simply relax and have a look at her soft, scrummy knitwear - only available in Hoswick.  Highly textured handspun 'artyarn' is also available, using the finest quality Shetland hand-picked fleece, Scottish Cashmere and other exotic silks, angora and mohair.

    Meet the designer, and enjoy an unexpected experience - who knows, you might even find yourself having a go on a spinning wheel!

    Alternatively, view the website to see what is currently available. Remember, these items are made in extremely small numbers, so stock is constantly changing.  Nielanell is always designing and adding new additions to her collections.

    Remember to phone if would like a peek out with 'normal' hours as staff are delighted to help. Watch out for alternative opening times on the website.
