West Yorkshire Spinners - Croft - Aran
The Croft - 100% Shetland Tweed Aran
West Yorkshire Spinners are proud to present 'The Croft - Shetland Tweed' produced from 100% Shetland Island Wool.
Made with Shetland Island Wool, a fibre celebrated for its fineness, warmth and strength. It is a collaboration with Jamieson & Smith of Shetland.
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.
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.
