Inspired by the designs of T.M. Adie, of Voe, a traditional Shetland Tweed weaver, this unique Real Shetland Cushion is manufactured in the United Kingdom using 100% Real Shetland Wool in the casing and filling (100% cotton inner case).
The Shetlands are a small group of northern Scottish islands with a proud weaving and knitting heritage and their own distinctive breed of diminutive sheep which thrive in the harsh, windswept climate. Real Shetland yarn production is a croft industry which sustains artisans in this remote part of the UK.
