Real Shetland Wool is an incredibly natural and sustainable fibre and is world-renowned for its fineness and warmth. Shetland Sheep graze on the islands’ hills and beaches eating wild heather and seaweed. This diet, along with the not-so-great weather, makes Shetland wool soft, strong and warm. Our wool is perfect for hand-knitting both Shetland Lace and Fair Isle, as well as for knitwear manufacture and weaving.
Everything we do at Jamieson & Smith is with the aim of enhancing the profile of Shetland wool, so as to raise the prices for local wool producers. Our range of hand-knit patterns are designed especially with our wool in mind.
