Wool is wonderful. It is the world’s oldest renewable fibre, one of our greatest natural resources and full of natural benefits. West Yorkshire Spinners work in partnership with British Wool, so are always assured of responsibly sourced fleece, from the field to their Yorkshire mill.
WYS are skilled craftspeople who expertly blend and spin British fleece into ColourLab Aran – a warm, breathable and machine washable hand knitting yarn that’s perfect for every day. With superb stitch definition, rich and deep colours, and a touch of tweed.
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.
WYS 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.
