Re:treat is the latest addition to West Yorkshire Spinners collection of British yarns. Re:treat is a chunky wool which creates smooth, light fabrics with a luxurious silky texture. It has a roving quality and a soft twist that glides off your needles. Re:treat proudly bears the new British Wool logo, a guarantee that it is British to the core. The wool selected to make Re:treat comes from an exciting cross breed of Bluefaced Leicester – famous in British hand knitting for its soft handle – and Kerry Hill – renowned for its distinctive markings and clean white fleece.
In a combination of 11 calming and uplifting harmonious shades – and two marled colour-ways – Re:treat is the perfect yarn to relax and unwind with. Not only do the names of the yarns reflect the growing awareness of the mental health benefits of knitting and crochet but West Yorkshire Spinners are donating 50p to Mind for every kilo of yarn sold.
The Re-treat pattern book contains 12 patterns for homewares, sweaters and accessories designed by Georgia Farrell. So, whether you want to relax with a quick knit or challenge yourself with texture and detail, you’ll find something to suit.
