Jamieson & Smith
Jamieson & Smith Shetland Wool purchase Shetland wool from over 700 of Shetland's crofters and farmers and transform it into high-quality Shetland wool and other.
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 (Haapsalu Scarf) and Fair Isle, as well as for knitwear manufacture and weaving.
Jamieson & Smith have been around since the 1930s, when it was founded by the Smith family of Berry Farm in Scalloway, on the east coast of Shetland. In the 60s, we re-located to our current premises overlooking the harbour in Lerwick. In 2004 the Smith family retired and joined with Curtis Wool Direct in Yorkshire.
All of products carry the 3 Sheep Logo, which signals that the product is manufactured from 100% Real Shetland Wool from pure bred Shetland Sheep that are born and bred on the islands.
Ideal yarn for Haapsalu scarf (lace).
