I absolutely love my mitts, they are beautifully made with such attention to detail. I can't thank you enough for your above and beyond customer service. A truly first class buying experience from beginning to end. Totally recommended. I will definitely be in touch again for another lovely pair of mitts in the future :o) *****

Fair Isle Knitwear by Helen Gray Designs

I live in the heart of the Scottish Borders, with the Gala Water over the back yard in one direction, and the new Borders Railway in the other direction.

There's plenty of wild life around - herons and crows, bats and squirrels, and the rail track across the way has an abundance of wild flowers which provides endless inspiration for my knitwear. Here's a short montage of some of them, with a view of the Gala Water weir at the end:


I've knitted all my life and love fair isle and Shetland lace. My shop is focused mainly on fair isle accessories (with the occasional sweater) - hand and machine knit. I tend to use mostly natural fibres such as cashmere, alpaca, wool and silk.

I am on Ravelry as hgd11, where you can see projects knit from my patterns.
