Renowned designer Erika Knight has teamed up local mills to create a genuine 100% British homegrown yarn. British sheep are shorn and their fleeces selected all within 38 miles of the West Yorkshire mill where it is carefully spun and dyed, hanked and hand tied by local experts.
– “I am proud to be associated with the Campaign for Wool, a countrywide initiative convened by HRH Prince of Wales promoting the natural, sustainable origin of wool, and as such I am passionate to be bringing manufacturing back to Britain and keeping sheep a feature of our landscape”.
Maxi Wool is a wonderful soft & voluptuous yarn that has been steamed to enhance its appearance & natural spring.
Easy to work with it has excellent wearability & comes in a gorgeous muted palette of colours.
Erika Knight offers a wide range of patterns specially designed for her yarns.
