Welcome to The Skye Shilasdair Shop, Dye House and Exhibition

The Shilasdair Shop

Visit us in the wild, scenic croftlands of the Waternish Peninsular on the beautiful Isle of Skye. An area steeped in history and with impressive views to the outer isles.

Our shop specialises in the naturally dyed yarns produced by Shilasdair, the Skye Yarn Company, as well as locally designed garments created by experienced hand knitters and KnitKits catering for all abilities.

We also stock local yarns such as Waternish Hebridean (only in Aran weight and black) and Skye Alpaca when available.

The Skye Shilasdair Shop is the sole retail outlet franschised to sell Shilasdair Yarns in the Highland area of Northwest Scotland, home of the originating company Shilasdair Yarns. By agreement the Skye Shilasdair Shop is also the designated retail outlet for referred mail order sales of Shilasdair products in the UK.

For trade and an overview of the dye method, ethos and general product range of the global trading company Shilasdair Yarns, visit 


Please see our  Yarns  page for information on the new wool blends.


Many apologies to anyone who purchased this pattern from me.
I commissioned this pattern as I am not an experienced lace knitter myself.
It has now come to light that there are a number of problems with the pattern which we are working to resolve.
If you would like a copy of the revised version when it is available please email me and I will make sure I send you one.
I am very sorry for any inconvenience and frustration.
