Last time I shared my love of sock yarn and it continues today with West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4ply. If you’re worried about yarn miles (like air miles for wool), then this may be the yarn for you. All West Yorkshire Spinners yarns are reared, sheared and spun in Britain so you might have seen the sheep that make up your yarn on your last trip to the countryside!
Their Signature 4ply yarn is 75% wool, 25% nylon giving it the durability needed for socks and items that will get lots of wear. At least 35% of the wool is lovely Bluefaced Leicester making it super soft and with a slight sheen, a real luxury. All this for only £7.20 for a 100g ball. What more could you ask for?They have just launched a range of new colours. First up, the Fabulously Festive Holly Berry which draws together a range of Christmas colours in a pretty self patterning parcel. This is joined by the accent colour, Cherry Drop, perfect for contrasting heels and toes.There is a free pattern to accompany this yarn designed by Emma Wright. One ball of each colour is more than enough for a pair of socks and might even leave you enough for a coordinating pair of fingerless gloves. Holly Berry is a Limited Edition so buy it while you can!
There are also 3 new additions to the popular self patterning Country Birds range – Goldfinch, Kingfisher and Peacock, each with two accompanying solid accent colours. Goldfinch goes with Cherry Drop and Cinnamon Stick, Kingfisher with Spearmint and Turmeric,and Peacock with Chocolate Lime and Blue Raspberry. All these colours are available now. Why not come and have a look?
