The ninth annual celebration of Shetland’s knitting heritage kicked off today (Saturday).
More than 600 visitors are expected to travel to the isles to attend Shetland Wool Week 2018.
A plethora of events including workshops, tours, demonstrations and talks will be on offer during the festival, which has become a major draw for Shetland.
Last year’s event was said to have generated around £700,000 for the isles economy.
