Through the course of a summer, Debbie travels to all corners of Scotland to personally gather fleece from 10 extant Scottish breeds. A longtime spinner and knitter, Debbie designs and knits socks to reflect the characteristics of each breed and the spirit of her journeys.
She writes beautifully and movingly about her travels; the landscapes explored, the sheep and people she meets, weather both foul and fair, and an intriguing island of feral sheep. A Welsh-born Scot, Debbie has a real connection to the land, its people and animals, magnified by her main method of travel: on foot, with tent, spinning stick and needles packed in her rucksack.
A wonderfully illustrated travel adventure through Scotland, with 11 original sock patterns included.
