The design of this stunning Fair Isle V Neck Tank Top is inspired from 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

The Prince was portrayed wearing the jumper in 1921

This image is said to have started the fashion for Fair Isle knitwear in 1920s – the Prince is shown wearing the jumper and holding a terrier, dressed for golf
