West Yorkshire Spinners - Croft Shetland Colours - Aran
West Yorkshire Spinners are proud to present 'The Croft - Shetland Colours' produced from 100% Shetland Island Wool.
Croft is spun from Shetland Island Wool, a fibre celebrated for its fineness, warmth and strength.
The Tweed Aran was so popular that those clever people at WYS have developed a range of solid colours in the same fibre! Selecting key colours from the sophisticated hues of the tweed and balancing them with classic tones. The result - 12 distinctive Shetland Colours that represent the rich heritage of the Shetland Islands.
Sarah Hatton was keen to work with the yarn once again, and a pattern book of
traditional yet modern family designs accompanies the yarn.
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.
