Jamieson & Smith Shetland Wool Brokers Ltd. purchase Shetland wool from over 700 of Shetland's crofters and farmers and transform it into high-quality Shetland knitting yarn; with the infamous 2 py Jumper Weight (knits as a standard 4ply) being perfect for colour work. The range of colours gives you vast flexibility when selecting for your colourwork too!
Shetland wool is an incredibly natural and sustainable fibre and is world renowned for its fineness and warmth. Also due to the weather and the sheep's diet the wool is soft, strong and warm. It is perfect for hand-knitting both Shetland Lace and Fair Isle, as well as for knitwear manufacture and weaving.
Everything at Jamieson & Smith is done with the aim of enhancing the profile of Shetland wool, so as to raise the prices for local wool producers. They play an important part in sustaining Shetland's fragile crofting industry, as well as their textiles industry and heritage.
