About this Item: Shetland Times, 1995. Hard Cover. Condition: Fine Condition. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. EAN: 9781898852018. 201 pp. Indexed. Illustrated. Book itself is flawless. Dust Jacket has tiny tear to foot of fore-edge and the slightest of crimp along top edge. It is now protected in a New Mylar Cover. This book traces the history of the Shetland hand knitting industry from its earliest recorded occurence in 1618 up to 1950. The important economic role of hand knitting to the Shetland economy is examined. As payment for knitting was often in the form of goods rather than money, the growth and slow demise of this "truck" economy is explored. Traditionally the Shetland economy was based on fishing, crofting and knitting, with the knitting being undertaken by women. The isolation of the islands and the high quality of the native Shetland wool, made knitting an ideal occupation for Shetland women. And it was due to the quality of the native wool and the highly developed knitting skills of island's women, that Shetland became renowned for its supurb hand knitting. Unlike many other rural areas in Scotland, Shetland women were able to adapt their knitting skills to changing market forces, thus the evolution of Shetland lace in the 1830s, fine underwear in the 1880s and Fair Isle knitting in the 1920s, all managed to ensure that handknitting remained an important strant of the Shetland economy.
