Best Of British Yarns

WINNER - West Yorkshire Spinners

West Yorkshire Spinners was founded in 1997 in the original home of the British worsted spinning industry. The brand was established during a turbulent time that saw many spinning mills close due to the increase in yarns being imported from overseas. Because of the region’s rich history of textile manufacturing, it was the wish of our company’s founders to make sure the knowledge and passion were not lost forever. I think it is safe to say that they achieved their goal!
