We are proud and excited to introduce ‘The Croft – Shetland Tweed'. Produced from 100% Shetland Island Wool, this world-renowned fleece produces a stunning and unique tweed yarn that we are extremely proud of.
We had long awaited the opportunity to work with Shetland Island Wool, a fibre celebrated for its fineness, warmth and strength. We were delighted to be given the chance by Jamieson & Smith of Shetland to use this fantastic fleece.
We wanted to stay true to the roots of The Croft and named each shade after a location on the Shetland Islands. Crofting is integral to the landscape, cultural heritage and social economy of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. It bonds people and places in a unique way, preserving livelihoods and age-old traditions.
The supporting pattern book contains a collection of garments and accessories for both men and women, designed by the talented Sarah Hatton. These practical yet distinctive garments combine traditional design elements with a contemporary edge that really showcase the unique colour effect of the yarn.
