ShetlandWoollen Company has a rich history which dates back to 1924, when the original company L.J. Smith began trading in woven and knitted goods.
Shetland Woollen Company has been knitted here since the 1950s.
Now we are one of a few remaining knitwear factories in Shetland.
We have been employee owned since 2019
Becoming employee owned was important to us as it ensured our jobs were safe and the company would continue being a true Shetland brand.
We are passionate about our knitwear and what we do and we want to continue doing what we love for years to come.
We only use natural wool to knit our products.
We source our wool from as close as 40 miles up the road on mainland Shetland to as far as northern England.
We aim to use mainly Shetland and Scottish suppliers to keep it as local as possible.
