Most versatile colour to go with for my first Shetland? Thinking of an oatmeal/camelOctober 30, 2018 at 2:34 am #8294
Does anyone know the best time to wear a striped sweater?October 30, 2018 at 2:34 am #8295
Shetland Sweaters are the bomb. I own three, and I look forward to the late deep and fall and early winter where I can finally pull on a long sleeve shirt and then put them over them. Shetland wool takes color so well and so brilliantly, that you can find them in the most gorgeous patterns.
Derek as always has excellent suggestions on where to buy (I’ve personally had excellent experiences with both O’Connells and The Andover Shop), but I just wanted to highlight Drake’s which has a couple beautiful [multi-colored offerings](https://www.drakes.com/usa/apparel/knitwear/purple-and-yellow-block-stripe-brushed-shetland-crew-neck-jumper) up this [year](https://www.drakes.com/usa/apparel/knitwear/white-and-blue-stripe-brushed-shetland-crew-neck-jumper)October 30, 2018 at 2:34 am #8296
Are there any brands with sub-$100 donegal sweaters? I’ve been searching but can’t find any.October 30, 2018 at 2:34 am #8297
any recommended brand for Canadians? I’ve been searching and the best one I can find is at JCrew, but not confident in their quality an longer.October 30, 2018 at 2:34 am #8298
Not sure if the quality is still good, but I’ve had a JCrew Shetland style sweater for years now that I love.October 30, 2018 at 2:34 am #8299
How do you wash them if you can’t let it touch water? Dry cleaning?October 30, 2018 at 2:34 am #8300
I bought an O’Connell Shetland in their “mushroom” color last week and I’m very pleased with it.October 30, 2018 at 2:34 am #8301
What are some American Brands for these, I assume shipping from Europe is going to cost me too dearly and I’m probably too broke to be getting one of these as it is.October 30, 2018 at 2:34 am #8302
O’Connells is a solid choice if you’re willing to pay the premium. They show up on rare occasions on eBay for those hoping to score a deal.
Vintage Alan Paine Shetlands are very similar to O’Connells; I’ve had both and by look and feel, you can’t tell the difference. They don’t pop up often on eBay either but when they do, they tend to be underpriced esp for the quality.
Also look for Bills Khakis Shetlands. Up until a few years ago, they produced these in the USA in a few different colors. I don’t believe they do any more now.October 30, 2018 at 2:34 am #8303
Do people have recommendations on Shetland brands that come in both a somewhat slimmer cut and comes in XS? Most brands seem to have one or the other. Is this just a foolish desire given the baggier nature of Shetland look?October 30, 2018 at 2:34 am #8304
any opinions on how the uniqlo lambswool sweater compares?October 30, 2018 at 2:34 am #8305
Does anyone have any experience with [these](https://www.pendleton-usa.com/product/shetland-washable-wool-crewneck-50026.html?dwvar_50026_color=9659&cgid=M140#start=5&cgid=M140) Shetland sweaters from Pendleton? Would you recommend?
