The Croft Shetland Colours

Hello everyone, just a quick post today to show you the new colours we have just got in stock in The Croft wool, you may remember last year we launched the Shetland Tweed yarn which was a group of speckled shades produced in partnership with West Yorkshire Spinners:

The raw wool (of which we purchase over 80% of Shetlands Wool clip) is bought from us and WYS dyes and spins the wool into this yarn. The speckled shades have been very popular and they have just released these 12 new solid shades:

top row: Sullom, Seafield, Tresta and Norwick middle row: Voxter, Lerwick, Melby and Fetlar bottom row: Ollaberry. Belmont, Laxfirth and Bixter

Alongside the yarns a pattern collection has also been released featuring 14 designs by Sarah Hatton. The patterns contain a nice mix of adult and childrens garments and accessories. To see the designs in the book click here. We have also got in stock more of the original Croft Book for the Speckled shades also designed by Sarah.

As you know we put together a lot of colour combinations in our day to day world here at J&S and we couldnt resist putting some together in the new colours:

The yarn is decribed as an Aran weight but we would use it more as a DK/Light Aran but of course swatch and ensure you like the guage you get, you can see all the Croft Wool on our website here. 

Happy Knitting!
