YA221 WYS Retreat chunky roving shade pure 600x600

West Yorkshire Spinners Re:treat pure wool roving yarn

Some days you look at your yarn collection and feel there’s something missing. In our case this was Re:treat.

About Re:treat yarn

Re:treat is a beautiful British yarn, a blend of Bluefaced Leicester and Kerry Hill fleece, reared, sheared and spun in Yorkshire!

Feltable & knitable

As well as being perfect for dyeing, knitting & crochet (of course!), this chunky weight roving yarn can also be felted.

We are carrying the ‘Pure’ shade but you can match your hand-dyed yarn and knit your projects with any of the other colours in the Re:treat range.

Re:treat patterns

I’m busy working on a refresh and relaunch of some of my earlier design ideas to accompany this yarn and will be launching these as a new collection – my first new designs in a while.

In the meantime, there is a lovely pattern book over on the West Yorkshire Spinners website.

At just £6.50 per 100g ball it’s a fantastic British yarn – you can buy yours here.

Spread the love with a share!
