The catalyst for creating my own yarn collection was to support the British heritage of textile mills and to promote native sheep breeds.
From fleece to finished yarn in less than 50 miles, Wool Local is both authentically British and environmentally sustainable. Our design ethos is simple with garments based on classic shapes and designed to fit and flatter, that you will want to make again and again, and which, just like a much loved recipe, can be adapted and customised to suit your needs and style.
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.
Made in Yorkshire
"This is a truly local wool, with its roots in the heartland
of British textile manufacturing.”
An intimate blend of luxurious Bluefaced Leicester and hardwearing Masham, in a fine 4ply weight.
Wool is the ultimate natural fibre; biodegradable, breathable, hypoallergenic, soft, resilient and sustainable. Two of Britain’s best sheep fleeces, luxurious Bluefaced Leicester and soft, durable Masham are worsted spun to create an authentic British yarn.

Take time to perfect your slow clothes.
When you are taking the time to craft something by hand it is important to use the best possible materials and to enjoy the process as much as the final outcome. We believe in season-less designs that work time and time again reducing the need for fast, disposable fashion. This is about creating slow clothes for life.
