Known locally as the Wool Brokers, the world-famous Jamieson & Smith has been working with Shetland’s sheep producers since the 1930s to develop markets for their fleeces and to make these special fibers available beyond Shetland’s coastlines. As you spin their combed tops, you can dream about the sheep, grazing amongst the peat cuts in an ancient landscape.
