BAKKA promotes the tradition and heritage of Fair Isle knitwear, with one significant difference: instead of Shetland wool, the garments use 100% superfine merino yarn. The result is a silky soft and light product that provides additional warmth, comfort and convenience. The best traditional patterns and colours of the past are successfully married with the best yarn of the present, making BAKKA products distinguished and unique amongst other Fair Isle producers: contemporary heritage products.
The designs have all been inspired from the oldest garments in the collections of the Museums of Shetland and Edinburgh, using traditional patterns and colours. This is what many people around the world expect to see in a Fair Isle garment.
BAKKA's principal knitwear collection consists of a heritage range in traditional colours, and a 2-colour version of the same patterns.
Taken altogether, the whole is a celebration of Fair Isle knitwear.
