Mary Thomson specialises in designing and hand-frame knitting her own felted wool products. Using predominately Shetland wool, sometimes combined with other yarns such as the linen used in her beautiful Tlus baby blanket, these products are stylish, warm and virtually waterproof.
Mary's father's family are from Orkney and her mother's are Highland farming folk, while she works from a studio in the home she shares with husband Eric and Angus their equally loving and lovely charmer of a mixed breed dog. Overlooking a loch on beautiful Shetland, Mary's inspiration can be found in ever changing Shetland landscape and amazing sea views which surround her and from the Norse and Gaelic cultures.
The throws are extremely hard wearing and aftercare could not be more trouble free just toss in the washing machine on gentle (knitwear) cycle with cold water. They will survive being trampled by pets and kids, and ideal for your boat or picnics.
Mary enjoys the challenge of special requests from her customers and will endeavour to match colours and appropriate patterns for your décor. Should you find yourself in Shetland you will find the welcome is heartfelt in Mary's studio.
