UPDATE 24 May : COVID-19
The workshop is still closed to visitors. 
The online shop is open 24/7 as always and orders are being dispatched albeit with a slight delay.
The new cowls and thick scarves are available in the shop, and the headbands will follow in a couple of weeks.
And we have added a Bargain Basement to the shop! 
New development for the garment collection has now begun but this will be for 2021.
We are working behind the scenes on a new-look website and the appearance of the shop may at times look untidy while we do that. Apologies, but it won't last.
Thank you for your understanding.
Stay well. Keep safe. Protect your loved ones.


BAKKA produces contemporary Fair Isle textiles: where the traditional Shetland knitwear heritage meets modern functionality.


Its aim is to promote and help preserve the cultural heritage of a uniquely Shetland product: Fair Isle knitwear.

I believe that the only way to preserve a tradition is to contemporarise it, to use it. My inspiration is drawn from the oldest 'heritage' patterns and I have replicated the traditional natural colours. But instead of using Shetland wool, BAKKA uses the world's leader in luxurious contemporary 100% superfine merino yarn. The resulting textiles are silky soft, durable and affordable.

Additionally, BAKKA's products are as sustainable as possible; economically, socially and environmentally. And they are traceable.
