This new yarn from WYS, or West Yorkshire Spinners, is made of 100% Shetland Island wool. A true Aran weight yarn that is durable and weather resistant as expected from a Shetland Island wool yarn.

Produced in association with Jamieson & Smith of Shetland and using 100% British Shetland fleece, the yarn has a soft, silky handle, as well as plenty of warmth and strength for garments, accessories and more. The beautiful solid and tweed shades, named after towns and villages across the islands, come in unique colourways that complement the prestigious fleece. The Croft Aran is perfect for creating textures and cables for sweaters, accessories and blankets that will stand the test of time.
