The Croft Shetland Aran

Produced in collaboration with West Yorkshire Spinners this Aran weight yarn is perfect for plain knitting as well as Fair Isle and colourwork.

The high levels of crimp and wave in the fleece make it ideal for a hand knitting yarn. The Croft has a soft and silky handle that retains a lot of durabilities particularly suited to our new tweed collection.

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.
