There is a wonderful article at Orkney Today about the now defunct Sanday Knitters company.
As I understand it, the Sanday Knitters were victims both of their own success, and of the high delivery costs entailed in getting raw materials in, and finished garments out, of Sanday. In fact, we had a conversation about this with one of the knitters, only last week.
Let’s hope that the Sanday Spinners can approach a similar level of success. Bags I the trip to La Belle France.
