This is the first year that they have had a catogory for Best Brand for British yarn, this demontrates the popularity and high quality of British produced yarns, something we have always strived to highlight and promote! Shetland Wool has so many good features and its great to be recognised as a favourite British Brand.

    Congratulations on being nominated. It is well deserved and I can not think of anyone anywhere who puts in more effort and passion than you do at Jamieson & Smith. Yes, I am biased but you have earned our respect and we wish you well in the competition. From grading and sorting the wool that has come straight from the crofter, to be scoured and for some ranges combed into tops at the leading processing companies in Bradford, Haworth Scouring and Haworth Combing, through some wonderfully skilled dyeing and spinning and on to your shelves and on-line shop…. In our eyes you are winners already!

    Congratulations on your nomination!

    I wanted to vote but it’s open to UK residents only. Understandable but J&S is well know across the borders of the UK…

    I’m sure you’ll come out on top!
