Yorkshire Dale Yarn
Yorkshire Dale Yarn is our own brand of hand dyed yarns. They are hand dyed by us in Yorkshire and the colours are based on the flora and fauna found in the Yorkshire Dales.
We are passionate about high quality natural fibre yarns. Therefore we have selected our base yarns for their quality in a range of weights and we only chose those yarns that we know will make superb knitting wool. Our range currently includes Superwash Merino in Aran, DK, 4 Ply and Lace weights.
We have a range of single colours from beautiful muted tones through to bright tropical colours so we are sure there is a colour perfect for any knitting or crochet project.
We also do a selection of variegated yarns which bring together our single colourways into beautiful skeins with Yorkshire Dale Themes.
Plus we have lots of One of A Kinds and Special Editions so check back regularly.
To buy any of our yarn please visit the Yorkshire Dale Yarn Page on our Etsy Store. We always have One of a Kinds and special colourways available as well as our regular yarns available.
We have 24 different single colours for you to choose from. Each of our colours is inspired by and named after a plant, creature or place found in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales where we hand dye our yarn. You can buy any of our colourways in DK, 4ply, Sparkle Sock, Sparkle DK, Lace or Aran via the Yorkshire Dale Yarn Page on our Etsy store. Below is a gallery of our colours.

We currently have 6 regular variegated yarns which we hand dye. We also have lots of limited editions and OOAKs. All of these are inspired by the wonderful Yorkshire countryside. We keep a small stock of DK variegated yarns to purchase immediately.

Sock blanks are great for socks but as it contains a whole skein of yarn its great for making shawls, gloves, hats etc. Simply pull the end of the yarn and allow the blank to unravel as you work or if you don't like working with the kinks you can unwind it back into a skein, soak it for 10mins and let it dry and it will be nice and smooth again. They are available in 4ply,sparkle sock or DK. You can buy them on the Yorkshire Dale Yarn section of our Etsy store.
