We've just taken delivery of a fabulous selection of new colours from West Yorkshire Spinners. The yarn is Essential DK which is 75% British wool and 25% nylon and retails at £4.75 for 100g. The yarns are limited edition so if you want to take advantage of this lovely selection you will need to be quick!
We thought you would like to know a little bit about the concept and production of this yarn.
West Yorkshire Spinners creates their own yarns and colours and are constantly researching and developing new styles, techniques, shades and effects using their production and dyeing facilities. Because of this WYS are constantly spinning, testing and dyeing sample lots. Take the Fusions range for example. When developing new shades, a specialist machine injects 6 assorted solid colours to create the yarn and the variegated colour effect. It is very tricky to achieve the desired shades and consequently a by-product is stunning solid colours which don’t make the final product. WYS have now spun these into limited edition yarns and they really are very pretty and well worth a look and squeeze or go to our online shop and see the colours there. WYS Essential DK
