The Croft, Shetland Colours, by West Yorkshire Spinners
Discontinued shades update- Bixter and Tresta have been discontinued and will be available only as long as current stocks last. 30.07.21 Bixter now sold out.
We really loved the original Croft patterned wool so we are jolly delighted to have more of it to play with! The solid colours have a softness in the colour that will blend beautifully with the spotty tweedy glory of the original colours. Now squishy fair-isle is possible and the possibilities seem endless for cosy garments and accessories. Another hit for the West Yorkshire Spinners and Shetland Woolbrokers collaboration. As ever great value for a high quality yarn.
We fought all winter over who would wear the cardigan that Teri knitted as a shop sample so this winter after Becca has had the pleasure of knitting the new shop sample, the fights should be over as we will have one each (and Becca will knit it for a normal person so Teri will have her monkey arms dangling out of the ends of the sleeves).
