The Croft - Shetland Wool is produced from 100% Shetland Island Wool. Shetland Island wool is a fibre that is celebrated for its fineness, warmth, and strength. 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 durability. 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.
