West Yorkshire Spinners are proud to present The Croft - Shetland Tweed Aran produced from 100% Shetland Island Wool, a pure Scottish fiber celebrated for its fineness, warmth and strength. 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 the new tweed collection. Each color has been developed to reflect the rich heritage and colorful landscape of the Shetland Islands with multi colored speckles throughout.
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.
