Jamieson & Smith: A Shetland Story
At the heart of the Shetland wool industry is Jamieson & Smith, Shetland Woolbrokers, who have been buying and selling Real Shetland Wool since the 1930s. 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 history of this world-famous textile brand. To celebrate both Shetland's heritage and its future, J&S have commissioned eleven knitting patterns. Drawing on the distinctive legacies of Shetland Lace and Fair Isle knitting, worked in J&S yarns, and photographed in Shetland, these signature handknits unite the story of Shetland wool together with the rich textile heritage of the islands.
The collection includes 11 patterns for Jamieson & Smith yarns.
