Designed by Sarah Hatton and Rosee Woodland, this collection of women’s and men’s knitwear features modern colorwork, graphic textures and interesting cables that are perfect for layering through the ever-changing seasons.
The rural agricultural community on the Shetland Islands has a long and prestigious history of rearing Britain's most northerly native sheep and collecting their sustainable, high-quality wool. Known as crofting, this practice is integral to the landscape, cultural heritage & economy.
The exclusive relationship with Jamieson & Smith allows West Yorkshire Spinners to work with the fleece which is world-renowned for it's fineness, warmth & strength. The high crimp and wave in the fiber combined with its soft & silky handle create the perfect yarn for hand knitting.
"Shetland yarn has long been a favorite of mine so I was delighted to see The Croft DK join the West Yorkshire Spinners range. My designs were inspired by the rugged North Sea coastline - from the coils of thick ropes seen on the foreshore, to the prows of fishing boats and of course the wild waters themselves." --Rosee Woodland
"The yarn shows texture incredibly well which allowed me to include some cables in the collection, as well as simple pieces for a relaxing knit. We have included something to appeal to knitters of all skill levels." --Sarah Hatton
