West Yorkshire Spinners The Croft Shetland Tweed
The Croft is a faboulous aran wool, produced from 100% Shetland Island Wool.
A collaboration between WYS and Jamieson & Smith of Shetland that is truely magnificent.
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 WYS's tweed collections.
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.
