The Croft -- Shetland Colours
A family collection of 14 designs by Sarah Hatton using The Croft Shetland Colours.
From the publisher, West Yorkshire Spinners:
"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.
We had long awaited the opportunity to work with Shetland Island Wool, a fibre world-renowned for its fineness, warmth and strength. We were delighted to be given the chance by Jamieson & Smith of Shetland to use this fantastic fleece . . .
Sarah Hatton was keen to work with the yarn once again, we commissioned a collection combining traditional yet modern family designs, this seemed the perfect evolution for 'The Croft'."
This book contains knitting patterns for sweaters and accessories for men, women, and children.
