Brand - Jamieson's Knitwear

Family-owned firm Jamieson's specializes in the traditional soft Shetland wool. When Robert Jamieson founded it around 1890, he couldn't have ever imagined how much it would grow. Each of his descendants expanded and innovated. From mere merchants with knitwear, they became one of the first wool brokers, retail outlet owners, and first producers of 100% pure Shetland yarn. Until 1978, Shetland wool was thought to be too soft and was blended with wool from coarser breeds.

In 1981, they built Jamieson’s Spinning, Shetland’s only commercial woollen mill. Soon after that, new problems surfaced after the number of hand-knitters had declined due to the rise of the lucrative oil industry. Jamieson's family prevailed with a new innovation. They were among the first on the islands to automate the knitting process.
