The Croft DK Shetland Tweed


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

The Croft DK introduces a new collection of solid shades and complementary tweeds, each colour developed to reflect the rich heritage and colourful landscape of the Shetland Islands. The Croft’s soft and silky handle coupled with high levels of crimp and wave in the fibre make it ideal for hand knitting. West Yorkshire Spinners are delighted to work in association with Jamieson & Smith to create this beautiful new yarn.
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.
