Everest Shetland Voe

Everest Shetland Voe

90.00

100% Voe Authentic Shetland Lightweight Sweater as favoured by Sir Edmund Hillary during his Everest ascent in 1953.

This is a 1 ply garment, providing great comfort and warmth with a very light weight and feel. Our Shetland Voe is an undyed yarn spun in the natural colour of the fleece. The Shetland breed is hardy, often navigating dangerous Voe cliffs to reach the sea shore and eat seaweed in the ebb tide. The distinctive wool they produce is world reknowned and lightweight, resulting in an amazing natural thermal undergarment within extremely harsh climates,  which is why Sir Hillary favoured it.  Exclusive and highly prized , Voe True Shetland is pure, natural, undyed virgin wool, hand graded and sorted by Island experts to give you the finest quality and the most authentic Shetland knitwear experience available.

This garment is the perfect choice for those who prefer layering, providing a thin yet insulating cover allowing both breathability and flexibility of wear for changeable climates.

Our Everest Shetland is also available as a standard weight sweater.
