Lambswool wears much better than Shetland, it is much softer too. It is a different style. Shetland wool is much courser than lambswool and has a thicker, but not denser weave. My Shetland from Murray's has held up better than the one I got from the Andover Shop. Also, The Andover Shop and J. Press Shetlands are "brushed," or made to look worn. The Murrays is not brushed. I don't like the brushed ones, but many people do.
