THE CROFT SHET­LAND TWEED

Simply Knitting - - Read It -

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
