Neighbour Shetland Sweater
by Connor Keller
Neighbour, one of our favorite Vancouver retailers, have paired up with Harley of Scotland to produce a series of Shaggy Shetland Sweaters. Harley, a Scottish knitwear producer, have been in the industry since 1929 when they set up shop on Scotland’s North East coast. Neighbour were drawn to Harley’s work due in large part to their use of ‘seamless’ production, a technique which produces a garment as a single unit without multiple panels. Made from 100% new shaggy Shetland wool, this sweater has a great texture and slightly more volume than a typical Shetland wool knit. They’ve been styled in a regular fit, but Neighbour do advise sizing down if a more fitted look is what you’re after. The simplicity of the grey/silver colorway is particularly attractive as it makes the sweater very easy to pair with just about anything in your wardrobe. They’re available in store at Neighbour, or here online.
