I would like a specific dye lot. How can I request this?

Please make a note of your chosen shades in the Delivery and Order Comments box at checkout, and we'll send off your .

Wool Supplier FAQs
I am a local crofter/farmer and would like information about selling my wool to Jamieson & Smith. Who should I contact?
We love answering questions for new wool suppliers, as well as our 700+ existing ones. We offer a completely open and transparent system - both with the wool itself, which is tracked through our processing stages, and in our procedures and policies.
Common questions from our suppliers include how we handle the wool (including sorting and grading), where it goes after it comes through our doors, how we set prices, and what we are doing to increase the returns to Shetland's local wool industry. We do not sell our wool at auction (where actual net prices paid for the wool are significantly lower than the gross price reported and are therefore unhelpful to the wool supplier). Instead, we work hard to add the most value for our suppliers - and retain control of the authenticity of Real Shetland Wool - by marketing and selling it ourselves (both through Jamieson & Smith and our parent company, Curtis Wool Direct) all over the world.
Please visit us at our North Road Wool Store to see and hear first hand what we do and how we do it. Alternatively, don't hesitate to phone or email us.
