Quernstone Knitwear is the home of our own knitwear range, designed and hand made in Orkney. We also have a complementary selection of clothing and accessories, plus men's and ladies' knitwear from near and far.

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 the company’s own website.

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,.
