Shetland Collection Sweaters
The Pendleton Shetland Crew Sweater is a fashion classic for both men and women.
The name dates back to 1939, after a type of sweater favored by competitive rowers. And the wool? Well, some say the story of Shetland wool goes back to 1200 AD.
The Source: Quality Wool
Most of Pendleton’s Shetland Collection wool is from New Zealand, a country known for humane treatment of sheep.
Sweaters wear well with little-to-no pilling. If you see a sweater with suede patches at the elbow, it’s probably a well-loved, well-worn sweater.
Some yarns are solid colored, and some are heathered. We tend to choose heathers for our sweaters. With their flecks and blended tones, they are so visually interesting.
Pendleton has a variety of styles for men and women at our website. You can see them here:
We offer additional Shetland styles, especially for men. Zips, vests, cardigans–whatever your heart desires. Whether you’re feeling the Fall chill, or doing a little early holiday shopping, come see what we have to offer.
