Shetland is a wool produced by a breed of small sheep native to Scotland's Shetland Isles. And while it's often used for sturdy tweed fabrics, the wool—distinctive for its strength, fineness and rustic charm—is perhaps best known for the traditional Shetland sweaters. Many of the classic styles, like this one from O'Connell's, are still knit in Scotland using traditional techniques while some, like Brooks Brothers' have been washed for softness, and others like the throwback style from Wallace & Barnes boast vintage-inspired details like suede elbow patches and garter stitching. Whatever style you choose, opt for a bold color to brighten an otherwise dark winter wardrobe.
