Shetland Wool Week 22nd - 30th September 2018
The Directors and Management of KGQ Hotels are enthusiastic supporters of all things "Shetland" and would like to take this opportunity to give potential visitors a quick "brief" on Shetland Wool Week.
We would also (shamelessly) like to plug our low cost Direct Booking Room Rates (which are not available elsewhere) and our special 3 course Wool Week Restaurant Menu which is available at just £30 per head.
Full details of all events etc. can be found on the Shetland Wool Week web site. The Leaflet (800Kb download)(including a FREE Knitting Pattern) and Full Programme Brochure (10Mb download) are available on these links.
Talks, Shows and Drop-Ins
After that, there will be a number of shows, talks, and drop-ins you might wish to attend.
Exhibitions, Open Studios and Open Days
Tours and Demonstrations
From general tours around the island, tours of crofts, a tour of the local spinning mill and, last but not least, a raw wool sorting and grading demonstration by Oliver Henry.
