The Faroe Islands possess a strong affinity with knitting, making it the perfect destination for a crafting holiday. At one stage in the islands’ rich history, woollen products were the most traded goods – illustrating just how important craft culture is in this beautiful part of the world. Traditionally, the men of the islands carded and spun the wool whilst the women knitted, generating more than 100,000 pairs of knitted socks each year by the middle of the eighteenth century. By the nineteenth century, the same number of jumpers were also being produced to the same inimitable standard.
