The Woolly Thistle is delighted introduce 'The Croft - Shetland Tweed' produced from 100% Shetland Island Wool.
The Croft - 100% Shetland Tweed Aran
WYS had long awaited the opportunity to work with Shetland Island Wool, a fiber celebrated for its fineness, warmth and strength. They were delighted to be given the chance by Jamieson & Smith of Shetland to use this fantastic fleece.
In 2017 WYS launched ‘The Croft Shetland Tweed’, created using their state of the art dyeing machinery and techniques. The unique tweed effect was the result of their desire to be different and produce a yarn worthy of such a prestigious fiber. The collection, both yarn & design exceeded all expectations and the demand for a solid range of colors thrived.
Listening to customer feedback WYS started developing a palette that would complement the range. Selecting key colors from the sophisticated hues of the tweed and balancing them with classic tones. The result - 12 distinctive Shetland Colors that represent the rich heritage of the Shetland Islands.
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.
