Tucked down a narrowly winding, precipitous cart track ending in the sea, Shilisdair is based in a hut in the grounds of a crofters cottage on the shore of the Waternish peninsula.
Inside it’s cozy and welcoming, with yarns of every hue lining the walls, and hand-knits hanging from the rafters ready for purchase. Everything is hand-dyed with plant based pigments such as madder, onions, meadowsweet and indigo.
I couldn’t resist and bought several skeins. I guess the time has come to learn to knit, now!
