  • This 100% British Bluefaced Leicester Roving yarn is delightfully sheepy! Available in all natural (undyed) shades, this yarn is light, airy, bouncy and minimally processed.

    Bluefaced Leicester is a lustrous English longwool. It makes a soft and strong yarn. This fantastic yarn has a delightful halo (since it's a roving, unplied yarn) and surprisingly great stitch definition. Perfect for sweaters, accessories and even felting!

    Spun at the West Yorkshire Spinners Mill in Yorkshire.

  • "Reared, Sheared & Spun in Britain!"

    Situated in the original home of the British Worsted Spinning Industry, West Yorkshire Spinners combines state of the art technology with generations of expertise and unrivalled know-how to produce British hand knitting yarns and knitted garments of exceptional quality.

    At West Yorkshire Spinners we are extremely proud of our British Heritage, we are one of the few remaining worsted spinning companies left in the United Kingdom. We are also one of very few who still develop and market yarns in-house.  This affords us the freedom to innovate which sets us apart from the competition.  We firmly believe that knowing where our raw material comes from guarantees that the quality of the finished product is consistently high.

    We source all our own raw material which is then produced into knitting yarn in our state of the art factory based here in West Yorkshire. This reduces the carbon footprint of our products and also enables us to manufacture at a very low cost.
