Check out our other knitted items inspired by what Claire Fraser wears in OUTLANDER: The Series! If you’re like me, your hands get really cold during winter while working on the computer. To remedy the situation, we recommend wearing our Outlander Inspired Wristlets. Unlike mittens or gloves, they keep your hands warm and functional. Just about every Highlander in OUTLANDER wears a Scots bonnet. We hand-knit our Scots bonnets using a Scots bonnet pattern from the 18th century that we tweaked to include a drawstring to fit most adult heads. Our skilled hand-knitters make a variety of Celtic inspired accessories. Contact us for suggestions or custom orders.
The Scottish Thistle: The Legend and Meaning
Most people know and can easily recognize the thistle as the symbol of Scotland. Researchers believe that Scots chose the thistle as their first national flower.
Legend has it that a field of thistles saved a party of sleeping Scots warriors from an ambush by Norse invaders. When one of the Norse attackers trod on a thistle field with his bare feet, his cries and screams roused the Scots. The ambush became ineffective, and the Scots defeated the invaders. The Scots’ victory was all thanks to the thistle’s thorns! They then adopted the thistle as the symbol of Scotland. It represents the bravery, devotion, durability, strength, and determination of the Celtic people.
