Due to the overwhelming popularity of The Croft, our much-loved 100% Shetland wool range is now available in DK weight.
Designed by Sarah Hatton and Rosee Woodland, this collection of women’s and men’s knitwear features modern colourwork, graphic textures and interesting cables; perfect for layering through the ever-changing seasons.
The introduction of a DK weight in The Croft range was a wonderful opportunity to work with this beautiful yarn. I was lucky enough to work alongside the talented Rosee Woodland who has made great use of the colour range with some stunning colourwork designs. The yarn shows texture incredibly well which allowed me to include some cables in the collection, as well as simple pieces for a relaxing knit. We have included something to appeal to knitters of all skill levels.
Shetland yarn has long been a favourite of mine so I was delighted to see The Croft DK join the West Yorkshire Spinners range. My designs were inspired by the rugged North Sea coastline - from the coils of thick ropes seen on the foreshore, to the prows of fishing boats and of course the wild waters themselves. Working with Sarah Hatton on this collection was also a wonderful opportunity to collaborate with an old friend, whose beautiful designs I have always admired.
