Jamieson and Smith: lovely soft wool
if you like knitting then a good souvenir from Shetland is wool. A good shop is Jamieson and Smith. All the wool sold comes directly from Shetlands wool producers and no raw wool is purchased from outside the islands. The firm grades, sorts and blends the wool before it is spun into “pure Shetland” wool. They do also send orders out, you can order on their site.
What to pay: depends hon how much you buy!

Chemist shops in Union Street: No excuse for not smelling sweet!
Lerwick must have more chemist shops (ie pharmacies that also sell toiletries and other personal goods, and often camera equipment) per head of population than anywhere else on the planet. This dates back to the days of the Iron Curtain, when Soviet trawler crews, finding themselves in port, would buy all the perfume they could to take home.
