The Croft Shetland Colours Pattern Book - By Sarah Hatton
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.
After the success of 'The Croft - Shetland Tweed' pattern book, we asked Sarah Hatton to design a collection of garments and accessories for all the family. Sarah was keen to work with the yarn once again, and designed a collection of traditional yet modern family garments.
With designs for all the family, this collection features 14 patterns which work in harmony with the yarn both solid and tweed to create something truly special. You can see some of the designs in the images.
