'The Croft - Shetland Colours' is produced from 100% Shetland Island Wool and has been brought to us from West Yorkshire Spinners after the great success of their Shetland Tweed range. Listening to customer feedback WYS developed a palette that would complement the tweed range. Selecting key colours from the sophisticated hues of the tweed and balancing them with classic tones. The result is 12 distinctive Shetland Colours that represent the rich heritage of the Shetland Islands.
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.
