Hand-Knitted Fair-Isle Egg Cosies


These egg cosies have been hand knitted exclusively for The Fife Arms by Amy Gair, a textile designer and knitter who grew up on the Isle of Shetland. The wool she uses comes from crofters and farmers of the Shetlands, where the sheep graze on the hills and beaches eating wild heather and seaweed. Their diet, along with the harsh conditions they are often exposed to, results in a fleece that is soft, strong and warm – perfect for keeping your freshly boiled egg snug.

The design for these little cosies is inspired by Fair Isle, a style of knitting using multi-coloured geometric patterns in rows that was originally developed on Fair Isle, one of the Shetland Islands.

Amy Gair

Amy Gair lives on the beautiful and remote island of Shetland, where she first learnt to knit at the age of seven. She studied woven textiles before completing an MA in Fashion & Textiles at Glasgow School of Art and now works as a woven textiles accessories designer. She continues to knit, preferring to use Shetland wool both for its superior qualities and to support the crofters & farmers in Shetland. She sources mose of her wool from Jamieson & Smith, who buy over 80% of the wool produced in Shetland and in doing so play an important part in supporting Shetland’s crofts.
She is constantly inspired by the changing colours of the Shetland landscape as it passes through the seasons. She often uses traditional Fair Isle patterns in her creations, exploring the link with Scandanavian design – Shetland lying as it does in the North Sea between Norway and Scotland.
