Click here toNEW IN....We are excited to introduce ‘The Croft – Shetland Tweed'. Produced from 100% Shetland Island Wool by West Yorkshire Spinners, this world-renowned fleece produces a stunning and unique tweed yarn.
WYs had long awaited the opportunity to work with Shetland Island Wool, a fibre celebrated for its fineness, warmth and strength. They were delighted to be given the chance by Jamieson & Smith of Shetland to use this fantastic fleece.
They wanted to stay true to the roots of The Croft and named each shade after a location on the Shetland Islands. Crofting is integral to the landscape, cultural heritage and social economy of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. It bonds people and places in a unique way, preserving livelihoods and age-old traditions.
The supporting pattern book contains a collection of garments and accessories for both men and women, designed by the talented SARAH HATTON. These practical yet distinctive garments combine traditional design elements with a contemporary edge that really showcase the unique colour effect of the yarn. edit.
Some ladies from the local Knit & Natter group have been busy making the very useful & much needed TWIDDLE MUFFS 😃A Twiddle muff is a double thickness hand muff with bits and bobs attached inside and out. It is designed to provide a stimulation activity for restless hands for patients suffering from dementia.

After returning from living & working in Lanzarote for nearly 10 years I was a little unsure of what I wanted to do. Having trained and worked in Primary education I felt a change was on the cards. In my late teens, early twenties it was a dream to own or work in a wool shop, I never guessed that it would come true! On Friday 16th May 2014 my dream became a reality!
