I'm looking for a sou'wester hat (preferably classic yellow) for next week.  :ponders:

 

I thought LHD would be the place, but no. And neither does DH Marine have them.

 

So...where would I buy one in Shetland, or alternatively is anyone selling one (medium)?

They are still around Rasmie, and I saw them on ebay and Amazon. But can't get it delivered any earlier than the end of next week even using amazon prime.

^You could phone them to save you time, sorry I can't find my Shetland directory to give you the numbers though. Good luck.

Sorry to hear that. You could try phoning around all the country shops, you just never know.

maybe too late now, but you

could try Allans of Gillick at the Ness- they sell clothes ,or the Aywick shop on Yell?

Ethels Garage shop in Baltasound is another one that sells everything.
