After the success of The Croft - Shetland Tweed pattern book, Sarah Hatton designed this collection of garments and accessories for the entire family. Sarah was keen to work with the yarn once again, and designed a collection of traditional yet modern family garments. With designs for all the family, this collection features 14 patterns which work in harmony with the yarn both solid and tweed to create something truly special.
Background for The Croft Yarns - The rural agricultural community on the Shetland Islands have a long and prestigious history of rearing Britain’s most northerly native sheep breed and collecting its high-quality wool. This is part of a practice known as crofting, which 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. West Yorkshire Spinners is delighted to work with Jamieson & Smith and the famous Shetland Island Wool, a fiber world-renowned for its fineness, warmth and strength.
The following patterns are included in the book. Please click on any link to view a gift kit which includes this book with enough yarn to complete that pattern. After all, pattern books should come with yarn! (Coming Soon!) Each pattern is built upon The Croft Aran by West Yorkshire Spinners.
