Jamieson & Smith: A Shetland Story Download

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.

The Croft - Shetland Tweed Pattern Book

The rural agricultural community on the Shetland Islands have a long and prestigious history of rearing Britain’s most northerly native sheep breed and collecting its high-quality wool. This is part of a practice known as crofting, which is integral to the landscape, cultural heritage and social economy of the Shetland Islands. It bonds people and places in a unique way, preserving livelihoods and age old traditions.

We had long awaited the opportunity to work with Shetland Island Wool, a fibre world-renowned for its fineness, warmth and strength. We were delighted to be given the chance by Jamieson & Smith of Shetland to use this fantastic fleece.

To complement this range, we asked the talented Sarah Hatton to design a collection of garments and accessories that were practical yet distinctive. The garments combine traditional design elements with a contemporary edge that really showcase the unique colour effect of the yarn.

With designs for both him and her, this collection features 14 patterns which work in harmony with the yarn to create something truly special.

Take a winding trip through 12 states, from Harpers Ferry, West Virginia to Atlanta, Georgia; from the blue and gray Civil War-inspired 1865 Jacket to the "Frankly My Dear" Fichu, an homage to the velvet drapery dress hand-sewn by Georgia's most famous fictional heroine. Projects include ladies' sweaters and accessories like the sweet Honeysuckle Lace Bridal Set and the bold Lighthouse Tunic, a unisex vest inspired by the caverns of Arkansas for the guys, for a lucky baby a charming bunting fit for a christening, plus home decor items such as a darling felted tea cozy adorned with knitted magnolia blossoms. Since no vacation is complete without a generous sampling of the local fare, there's food!
