The rural agricultural community on the Shetland Islands have a long and prestigious history of rearing Britain’s 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.
A fantastic collaboration between West Yorkshire Spinners and Jamieson & Smith Wool-brokers gave rise to the Croft yarn. To complement this range, the talented Sarah Hatton has designed a collection of garments and accessories that are practical yet distinctive. The garments combine traditional design elements with a contemporary edge that really showcase the unique colour effect of the yarn. From patterns that even beginners can successfully accomplish to more challenging patterns for lovers of cables, this book has a delightful variety of patterns that are practical, wearable, warm and stylish.
With designs for both him and her, this collection features 14 patterns which work in harmony with the yarn to create something truly special that will last.
