Jamieson's - The Original Shetland Wool!

Camilla Valley Farm is pleased to offer Jamieson's 100% pure Shetland wool yarn spun in the company's own mill in the Shetland Islands north of the Scottish mainland for over a century. In a world where large corporations produce many products we buy, we are proud to support this small company, owned and operated in the Shetland Islands, that continues to produce the best Shetland Wool knitting yarn while promoting the work of the local sheep farmers and employing local Shetland Islanders to turn fleece into yarn!

The fleece of the native Shetland Sheep used in Jamieson's wool has a soft resilient texture which has developed over the centuries to protect them from the extreme weather conditions of their northern home. Jamieson's Shetland Wool is renowned by knitters world-wide for its unique texture. This real Shetland Wool is produced from Shetland Sheep living on the Shetland Islands and spun in a Shetland Islands Mill by Shetland Islanders!

We current stock (see below) all colours of the 2-ply Spindrift, Double Knitting, Heather Aran (previously called Soft Shetland) and Lace Ultra colours.

Jamieson's yarn is available in individually or in yarn packs for any of the designs in the Jamieson's growing collection of pattern books. We also have Shade Cards and Yarn Designer Kits that include a ball of every colour at a special discounted price!

Note: There is some confusion between the Jamieson's wool that we sell and yarn from the younger company Jamieson & Smith, a division of the Curtis Wool Direct corporation that spins their wool in England for retail and industrial markets. We do not sell this yarn, but we do provide a handy colour conversion chart for similar yarn weights to allow knitters to substitute Jamieson's yarn in Jamieson & Smith patterns.


Jamieson's History

Four generations have worked with wool in the business which is now Jamieson's Spinning in Sandness, a small and very remote community on the far Westside of Shetland. The business was started in the 1890's by Robert Jamieson, who brought knitwear spun and knitted by crofters, from their own wool. His son, Andrew, continued this tradition, but change always comes, and he had to start looking for yarn for his knitters, as hand-spinning steadily declined.

This meant buying wool, and sending it to the mainland of Scotland to be spun. Frustratingly, when the Shetland wool reached the spinners, technology and experience was such that it was blended with coarser clips from bigger sheep, to make spinning easier. A pretty good yarn was the result, but one which was never quite good enough, and many of the unique qualities of pure Shetland wool were missing.

Building

Bertie, the grandson of the founder, developed the business a degree further, setting up a retail shop in Lerwick, Shetland's capital and only town, and going on 40 miles from Sandness. That shop sold, and still sells gansies, happs, scarves, gloves and all the other garments which Shetland women have produced with their hands and on their machines over the years.

Through this time, the dream of creating a garment from nothing but the pure Shetland wool clip lived on in the family.

The dream started to come true over a hundred years later, in 1980, with a small, experimental spinning mill where they set out to spin pure Shetland wool, unblended with any other. Jamieson's now produce enough to satisfy customers who want to knit with the genuine article, and to make a considerable quantity of beautiful Shetland Tweed fabric as well.

Shade Cards & Yarn Designer Kits

The Jamieson's palette is the richest colour collection of wool yarn available today. With 226 colours of Spindrift, 174 colours of DK (Double Knitting) and 46 colours of Shetland Heather (Aran) currently available, being able to combine, compare and sample using any combination of shades makes the process more rewarding for the knitwear designer. The ability to quickly see how colours work together and to substitute others to determine the effect is key to the beautiful Fair-Isle designs produced in this wool.

Recognizing the need for knitters to actually see and feel the colours we have put together a number of options:


Shade Cards
We currently have a number of different shade card sets to allow the designer to mix and match colours. Our Spindrift/DK card set is 5 cards that includes all the current shades of these two yarns arranged by colour. We include approximately 12 inches of Spindrift yarn for each colour which is removable to allow colours to be put side by side.

We also have a separate Shetland Heather card with a 6 inch sample of each of the colours (Click on the pictures to the right to enlarge).

NEW! We have also created "electronic shade cards"
with these colours for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

Yarn Designer Kits
For those knitters who wish to be able to swatch with colour combinations, we have put together Yarn Designer Kits that include a complete set of full balls of Spindrift or DK yarn, one for each of the current colours. There are currently 226 colours in the Spindrift kit (pictured right) and 174 in the DK kit.

Note that we include every colour and not just a subset of shades like other kits and includes full balls of each colour and not mini-skeins or samples!

To make these more affordable, the kits are priced at a significant discount off the list price of this yarn and we also include a set of Spindrift/DK yarn cards which is a $30 value! Some of our customers split the cost among a group of knitters and then get together and divide it up among themselves!

Jamieson's Stocking Dealer

Unlike many stores, Camilla Valley Farm is a stocking dealer which means that we carry inventory of all colours of Jamieson's yarn in all weights and do not simply order it when a customer places an order with us. As well as faster delivery, this also means that customers visiting our store can make their selections while comparing the colours of the actual yarn. We normally maintain more than 8,000 balls in inventory, some of which is pictured below.
