hoswick paint wrap

sea blues

It wouldn’t be a Nielanell collection without a gorgeous, BIG, drapey wrap. The reverse is a lovely ‘birdseye’ speckle to provide a contrast with the Hoswick Paint pattern on the front.


Knitted in extra-fine merino, in a complex 5 colour jacquard, this shawl, from our 10th anniversary collection, is inspired by the colour and texture that surrounds the Nielanell studio in our home village of Hoswick, Shetland. The pattern features a detail based on the texture of old, salt-blasted paint in the village – which can be seen all around. The roundels are based on a drawing of hoppers (part of fishing nets, which wash up on the shore).


Choose from sea greys or blues.


100% merino wool



One size: 33cm (at widest point), 18cm (at narrowest point), 224cm (length).




Handwash recommended


We recommend that you hand wash using liquid or flakes. You may wish to wash in the machine on a very gentle handwash wool cycle at 30 degrees or less, using very little detergent specifically designed for delicate/wool items – but you need to ensure your washing machine uses a very gentle handwash wool cycle.


Do not wring.

Do not tumble dry. 


Dry flat on a rack or in the fresh air, and steam/press lightly. 


Alternatively you may dry clean the garment.

To ensure individuality we make a small number of designs in a particular colourway and some pieces are one-offs. If we have sold your chosen colour when you order, we will contact you – we may be able to make another or have an alternative in stock. Sizes of individual pieces and colourways can vary. If you’re unsure if this style will fit, or looking for a colour, please get in touch.
