The Croft - 100% Shetland Tweed Aran
West Yorkshire Spinners are proud to present 'The Croft - Shetland Tweed' produced from 100% Shetland Island Wool.
West Yorkshire Spinners have long awaited the opportunity to work with Shetland Island Wool, a fibre celebrated for its fineness, warmth and strength and are 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 feel that retains a lot of durability particularly suited to their new tweed collection.
The Croft is available in 8 beautiful shades named after location on the Shetland Islands
