The Croft Pattern Book 1 - Shetland Tweed
The rural agricultural community on the Shetland Islands have a long and prestigious history of rearing Britainís most northerly native sheep breed and collecting its high-quality wool. This is part of a practice known as crofting, which 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.
To complement the Shetland Tweed yarn range, WYS asked the talented Sarah Hatton to design a collection of garments and accessories that were practical yet distinctive. The garments combine traditional design elements with a contemporary edge that really showcase the unique colour effect of the yarn.
With designs for both him and her, this collection features 14 patterns which work in harmony with the yarn to create something truly special.
