Jamieson & Smith, founded in 1930, are Shetland Wool Brokers, who purchase wool from over 700 of Shetland's crofters and farmers. They transform this into high quality Shetland wool products including yarn. Their aim is to enhance the profile of Shetland wool, whilst sustaining the fragile crofting industry of the Shetlands.
Shetland wool is an incredibly natural and sustainable fibre, and is world renowned for its fineness and warmth. The Shetland sheep diet of wild heather and seaweed, along with the inclement weather, makes the wool soft, strong and warm. All their wool is hand sorted and graded.
This 2 ply jumper wool is the equivalent to a 4 ply weight. It is made from 100% Shetland wool, and is Jamieson and Smith's flagship yarn. The depth of colour and spinning quality are unrivalled.
