The croft is a stunning aran weight yarn produced from 100% Shetland Island Wool, a fibre famous for its strength, warmth and fineness.

This captivating Aran wool is inspired by the landscape, culture and rich heritage of the Shetland Islands. Produced in association with Jamieson & Smith of Shetland and using 100% British Shetland fleece, the yarn has a soft, silky handle, as well as plenty of warmth and strength for garments, accessories and more. The beautiful solid and tweed shades, named after towns and villages across the islands, come in unique colourways that complement the prestigious fleece. The Croft Aran is perfect for creating textures and cables for sweaters, accessories and blankets that will stand the test of time.

    My mother in law has been looking for patterns using English terminology. She loved the packaging and the quality of the wool. She found the pattern easy to follow and did the hat in an afternoon. The owner was quick and helpful when responding to my questions. I would recommend for anyone who wants to gift to a knitter or want to knit themselves!!

    Great experience - I was visiting Nantwich and saw the jumper in the window and fell in love with it. Unfortunately you were closed and I was only there for the day. Once I realised I could order from you it was easy to do the online order. I just wish I lived nearer to join your knitting class. Sad! Anyway I look forward to receiving more exciting information and updates. Thank you.
