THE CROFT SHETLAND TWEED
WEIGHT aran CONTENT 100% Shetland wool BALL 100g/166m NEEDLE 5mm RRP £8.50
Hailing from the woolly Shetland Islands, The Croft is spun from natural fibres and dyed in shades reflecting Shetland’s crofting areas.
Each of the eight shades is named after a different area in the Islands, such as Heylor (above). Other shades include Dalsetter – a stunning mix of pinks – and Mossbank, an earthy blend of natural colours.
The natural crimp and wave in the Shetland fleece creates a bouncy yarn, with great stitch definition thanks to its gloss.
Wash on a cool wool cycle and do not tumble dry. www.wyspinners.com 01535 664500
