The design of this stunning Women’s Fair Isle V Neck Tank Top is inspired by a jumper that was knitted in Fair Isle for the Prince of Wales, the future King Edward VIII

This Tank Top is woven in Shetland to a Fair Isle design based on the original jumper that was given to the Prince of Wales as a gift by James A Smith, a Shetland hosiery dealer
