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 wool products including yarns, knitwear, blankets and carpets.
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. Shetland Wool is also very diverse: it’s perfect for hand-knitting both Shetland Lace and Fair Isle, as well as for knitwear manufacture and weaving.

2ply Jumper Weight – is traditionally used in the knitting of Fair Isle garments.  This yarn can also be used in vintage patterns which call for “4ply yarn”.
