Integrity, adaptability, character and exploration – this is the Alternative Shetland knitwear. The Nielanell knitwear studio, based in the village of Hoswick, is a place of pilgrimage for those in the know. The small and unassuming shop only hints at the tactile sweetshop within, bursting with vibrant colour and scrumptious texture.

Rani Jumper


Ships From: United Kingdom (UK)

Sold By : Nielanell Category: Tags: ,


Cowl neck, drapey merino: an elegant and easy to wear jumper.

The darker colour is an inky blue, nearly a blue black, making pieces in the rani collection wearable with both black and blue… and particularly denim/indigo.

Because it is knitted in a double-sided fabric, some also see this jumper as reversible. With links (knitted seams) out the colours are reversed, giving a lighter coloured sweater.

100% extra-fine merino wool

Generous relaxed fit
Small-medium: underarm to underarm 61cm, back length 60cm, cowl height 20cm
Large-extra large: underarm to underarm 69cm, back length 64cm, cowl height 20cm

Handwash recommended

We recommend that you hand wash using liquid or flakes. You may wish to wash in the machine on a very gentle handwash wool cycle at 30 degrees or less, using very little detergent specifically designed for delicate/wool items – but you need to ensure your washing machine uses a very gentle handwash wool cycle. Do not wring. Do not tumble dry. Dry flat on a rack or in the fresh air, and steam/press lightly. Alternatively you may dry clean the garment.
