A’Nead Knitwear (Online Only) – Hand Knitwear– Isle of Eigg
A’Nead Hand Knitwear produces unique cobweb lace on the Isle of Eigg, Scotland. Scarves, shawls, wraps, stoles and cobweb fingerless gloves are hand knitted using traditional Shetland lace or Estonian lace patterns. The colours are inspired by the beautiful landscape of Eigg and the west coast of Scotland. Most pieces are a wool and silk blend, but sometimes some angora is added, or pure wool is used. The addition of silk adds a lustre to the finished item as well as adding strength, so, in spite of appearing very delicate, this lace is produced to last and hopefully be passed down the generations.

Bridal shawls can be square, round or hexagonal and can also have a ‘tartan’ border to link to the groom’s kilt, if he will be wearing one at the wedding. Cobweb scarves can be the traditional straight scarf, or a leaf scarf which has tapered ends and is extremely versatile and suitable for cold or warm weather, whilst cobweb fingerless gloves can add a finishing touch to that elegant outfit.
Each project is unique and bespoke orders are welcome. As environmental and ethical issues are important to A’Nead Hand Knitwear, every effort is made to limit the impact on the environment during production.
