How it's made
All our knitwear is made by us in our design studio here in Shetland.
We use the finest Lambswool to create soft and luxurious products. All our items are made to the highest standards and hand finished using age old techniques, passed down through generations, in a broad selection of colourful combinations. Each piece is individually made by us here at Ninian.
Why not come and visit us to see how and where it's made, feast your eyes on the array of colour and textures around you in our knitwear studio, and meet the team.
We love to chat and enjoy having visitors.
The Ninian Shop
Our shop in Shetland's main town, Lerwick, was established in 2003. Lerwick is a beautiful old town, famous for its picturesque lanes and of course where the award winning series "Shetland" was filmed.
Our knitwear studio is located at the back of our shop, with a view of the harbour. We stock loads of locally made items as well as carefully selected British made gifts to compliment our designs.
Come and visit us to see the vast array of items we stock - there's so much more than we have online.
We're open Monday to Saturday, 9am - 5.30pm and occasional Sundays throughout the summer season.
