Product Description

West Yorkshire Spinners share a philosophy with Purl &Jane – reared, sheared and spun in Britain.

Situated near 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 of exceptional quality.

West Yorkshire Spinners are extremely proud of their British Heritage, they are one of the few remaining worsted spinning companies left in the United Kingdom. They firmly believe that knowing where their raw material comes from guarantees that the quality of the finished product is consistently high.

They source all their own raw material which is then produced into knitting yarn in their state of the art factory based in West Yorkshire. This reduces the carbon footprint of their products, especially if it’s bought from Yorkshire’s fabulous yarn shop, Purl&Jane in Skipton!
