The Croft Tweed and Colours
The Croft - 100% Shetland Aran
Tweed Aran + Shetland Colours
We are proud to present 'The Croft - Shetland Tweed' produced from 100% Shetland Island Wool, a fibre celebrated for its fineness, warmth and strength.
In 2017 ‘The Croft Shetland Tweed’ was launched, created using state of the art dyeing machinery and techniques. The unique tweed effect was the result of WYS desire to be different and produce a yarn worthy of such a prestigious fibre. The collection, both yarn & design exceeded all expectations and the demand for a solid range of colours was born - The result : 12 distinctive Shetland Colours that represent the rich heritage of the Shetland Islands to mix and match with Tweed shades.
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 our new tweed collection.
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.
