Inspired by the hugely successful The Danish Fano Strikkefestival, Loch Ness Knit Fest pulls on the rich cultural crafting tradition of the Highlands, Scotland.

Our preliminary workshop and presentation program is now live!

The Inverness Ice Centre will be transformed into a yarn hub with a Marketplace showcasing wool, yarn, patterns, needles, books, buttons and much more. There will be local musicians performing live, fashion shows and lots
of inspiration!

Come and experience the Highlands this October and get to know this beautiful corner of the world. Last year
1200+ visitors from over 20 different countries joined in the fun.
