WYS The Croft Shetland Tweed

‘The Croft – Shetland Tweed'.

 

Produced from 100% Shetland Island Wool, this world-renowned fleece for its fineness and warmth, produces a stunning and unique tweed yarn. The high levels of crimp and wave in the fleece makes it an ideal hand knitting yarn. The Croft has a soft and silky handle that retains a lot of durability.


West Yorkshire Spinners wanted to stay true to the roots of The Croft and named each shade after a location on the Shetland Islands. Crofting is integral to the landscape, cultural heritage and social economy of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. It bonds people and places in a unique way, preserving livelihoods and age-old traditions.
