    The Croft - 100% Shetland Tweed Aran

    We are proud to present ‘The Croft - Shetland Tweed’ produced from 100% Shetland Island Wool.

    We had long awaited the opportunity to work with Shetland Island Wool, a fibre celebrated for its fineness, warmth and strength. We were delighted to be given the chance by Jamieson & Smith of Shetland to use this fantastic fleece.

    The high levels of crimp and wave in the fleece make it ideal for a hand knitting yarn. The Croft has a soft and silky handle that retains a lot of durability particularly suited to our new tweed collection.

    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.

    The Croft Shetland Colours

    $19.99

    In 2017 West Yorkshire Spinners launched ‘The Croft Shetland Tweed’, created using state of the art dyeing machinery and techniques. The unique tweed effect was the result of their desire to be different and produce a yarn worthy of such a prestigious fibre.

    After listening to customer feedback WYS started developing a palette that would complement the range. Selecting key colours from the sophisticated hues of the tweed and balancing them with classic tones. The result - 12 distinctive Shetland Colours that represent the rich heritage of the Shetland Islands.
