Now in stock at the Bourton Basket: The Croft – Shetland Tweed produced from 100% Shetland Island Wool.
Shetland Island Wool, is a yarn celebrated for its fineness, warmth and strength. Produced by West Yorkshire Spinner and 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. We also stock the Croft pattern book and a sample jumper on display in the Bourton Basket.
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.
