Quernstone Knitwear is home to our own knitwear range, which has been designed and hand made in Orkney for more than 30 years. We have a complementary selection of clothing and accessories, plus men's and ladies' knitwear and a gorgeous selection of yarns including the famous North Ronaldsay wool.

We have installed screens and provide hand sanitiser at the door. We ask customers to respect people's space while in the shop.

Based in a 1920s ice cream parlour in the heart of the historic town of Stromness, Quernstone Knitwear offers a range of knitwear that is stylishly casual and easy to wear. There is a large selection of lengths and styles in our unique colour palette.

Made in Orkney by a highly skilled group of workers, using only the finest quality yarns, the Quernstone’s distinctive signature knitwear is also available at various other shops throughout Orkney and the rest of Britain, in addition to being sold online through our own website. We are happy to send to anywhere in the world.

The famous North Ronaldsay yarn is stocked in both the natural colours and in beautifully hand dyed hues. There is a large selection of Shetland and other yarns, plus knitting and crochet books for all.

There is a wonderfully ecletic mix of clothing, jewellery and accessories throughout the store, including many Orkney made pieces. We are delighted to stock a broad selection of knitwear and clothing brands for both men and ladies,.

Dogs are welcome in both our knitwear shop and The Quernstone.
