Erika Knight

British Blue 100

  • These squidgy hanks of goodness are big brother to the super-cute 25g balls of British Blue (a perfect colourwork/colour-pop accompaniment). 

    Spun from lustrous 100% British Bluefaced Leicester fleece - a fibre which is revered for its softness and silkiness with great drape, but also it's strength and resistance to pilling.  

    BFL is the cream of the British wool crop and is about the finest commercial demi-lustre wool in the world. It's naturally soft, sustainable and comfortable.  You'll love creating with this yarn!

    The palette is beautifully contemporary (just like Erika!), very wearable, and we stock every colour!

  • Erika Knight:

    My yarn collection is concise and considered with fibres and colours carefully selected so that you can be confident in choosing a beautiful, quality yarn for whatever you wish to create.

    My ethos has always been to keep things simple: to support British manufacturing where possible, to promote sustainable, natural fibres and to celebrate traditional skills. Having worked in the textile industry for most of my career and in many different guises, I am passionate about innovation and heritage in equal balance.

    When you are taking the time to craft something by hand, it is as much about the process as the final outcome, so for me, it is important to use the best possible materials. This of course means using different yarns and fibres for different purposes and understanding the characteristics of each.

    “I believe it is an inherent human trait to construct fabric in order to catch, clothe, nurture and decorate”
