West Yorkshire Spinners

West Yorkshire Spinners yarn really is the best of British with all the wool reared, sheared and spun in the UK. They won the Best British Yarn Brand in the 2014 British Knitting Awards.

The yarn has a low carbon footprint which enables them to keep the cost low making for very affordable knitting.

They work closely with very talented designers including Anniken Allis and Julie Fergurson to make a unique range of knitting patterns that coordinate perfectly with the yarns.

The Signature 4ply yarn is great for knitting socks but is also suitable for so much more. The nylon makes it hard wearing while the high blue faced leicester content adds a touch of luxury with softness and shine.

There are 3 distinct colour ranges - Country Birds, Spice Rack and Sweet Shop.

The Country Birds colours are self patterning with the inspiration for each colour way coming from a different bird. I love the subtle purple and grey of wood pigeon and the bold orange and greens in pheasant.

The Spice Rack colours are muted with each shade picking out an accent colour from one of the Country Birds yarns meaning they work perfectly together.

The Sweet Shop range is bright and cheery with lime greens, hot pink and eye catching blues. Almost good enough to eat!
