We are proud to present 'The Croft - Shetland Tweed' produced from 100% Shetland Island Wool.
Shetland Island Wool is a fibre celebrated for its fineness, warmth and strength. WYS have worked with 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.
