Jamieson & Smith have been around since the 1930s, when it was founded by the Smith family of Berry Farm in Scalloway, on the east coast of Shetland. Shetland wool is an incredibly natural and sustainable fibre, and is world renowned for its fineness and warmth.

All of these products carry the 3 Sheep Logo, which signals that the product is manufactured from 100% Real Shetland Wool from Sheep that are born and bred on the islands
