The Croft – 100% Shetland Tweed Aran
‘The Croft – Shetland Colours’ is produced from 100% Shetland Island Wool.
WYS had the opportunity to work with Shetland Island Wool, a fibre celebrated for its fineness, warmth and strength. They were delighted to be given the chance by Jamieson & Smith of Shetland to use this fantastic fleece.
In 2017 they launched ‘The Croft Shetland Tweed’ which has a unique tweed effect yarn
Sarah Hatton was keen to work with the yarn once again, and a pattern book of traditional yet modern family designs accompanies the yarn. Look in our ‘books and pattern’ section on the website
Crofting is integral to the landscape, cultural heritage and social economy of the Shetland Islands. It bonds people and places in a unique way, preserving livelihoods and age old traditions.
