Welcome to Spirit of Shetland
As you no doubt realise there are many imitations of Shetland knitwear available world-wide. Very few of these so called "Shetland" garments have ever seen Shetland and are poor imitations of our genuine warm, light weight, natural wool grown in our dynamic northern climate. All our designs, including Fair Isle patterns, can be adapted to suit your individual requirements.

Are you looking for natural colors, a traditional colour or something special, contact us, we aim to please.
All our garments and accessories are produced entirely in Shetland. The wool comes from sheep grazing on our hills, this wool is spun in Shetland at the Sandness spinning mill, the yarn is hand frame knitted in Shetland homes, and the garments completed, washed and pressed on the Shetland island of Trondra. The only time our sweaters, hats, jackets, gloves lace shawls and other clothing ever leave Shetland is when you buy them.
