Jamieson & Smith: A Shetland Story Download

Please Note; this is a digital PDF version of the book, a print copy can be purchased here

Shetland textiles have for centuries been loved and admired across the globe. With our characterful sheep and instantly recognisable styles of Fair Isle and Shetland Lace knitting, the Shetland islands have long been associated with a thriving local wool industry. At the heart of this industry is Jamieson & Smith, Shetland Woolbrokers, who have been buying and selling Real Shetland Wool since the 1930s. Today, Jamieson & Smith is run by a skilled and passionate team who continue to build on the company’s proud legacy. Inside this book, you’ll find out about the people who founded, built and sustained the Shetland Woolbrokers, and discover the history of this world-famous textile brand. To celebrate both our heritage and our future, we’ve commissioned ten handknit designs. Drawing on the distinctive legacies of Shetland Lace and Fair Isle knitting, worked in our yarns, and photographed right here in Shetland, these signature handknits unite the story of Shetland wool together with the rich textile heritage of the islands.
