When Fiona came to Upper Nithsdale she discovered Sanquhar gloves. Not being one to shy away from a challenge, Fiona knitted her first pair, which she still has. Since then, countless more pairs have followed. Latterly, since her involvement in A’ the Airts, she has become the key glove knitting demonstrator for the Centre’s popular Sanquhar knitting tours.

Di Gilpin studied history and politics at university and started work as a teacher. In 1983, she took a year-off to travel, and arrived on the Isle of Skye with little more than a rucksack containing a tent, wool and knitting needles.

Based in a semi-ruined croft, she spent 18 years on the island. Inspired by the nature, landscape, sea and people around her, she developed her knitting expertise, experimenting with different processes, styles and stitches. With her business growing, she moved to Fife and established Di Gilpin Ltd.
