West Yorkshire Spinners

West Yorkshire Spinners (WYS)

WYS are extremely proud to be one of the few remaining hand knitting brands in the UK market still developing and manufacturing yarns in-house.

Bo Peep is a luxury baby double knit yarn.

It is a sumptuous blend of the purest Falkland Island wool and finest nylon – perfect to wrap your favourite little people in.

Of course, we all know that babies are cute but also messy, so this yarn is machine washable at 40 degrees.

The Bo Peep Story Book has a selection of designs for you to make, the trickiest decision will be which one 1st!

Composition 52% Falkland wool, 48% nylon

Meterage 112 m on 50g ball

Tension 22 sts & 28 rows = 10cm / 4”

New colours out very soon!!!


Illustrious dk

Illustrious is a fabulous blend of 70% Falkland wool and 30% British Alpaca, and is an absolute delight to knit with.

As an extra, it is also machine washable at 30 degrees (we wash ALL our samples in the shop and, yes, it truly is machine washable!)


The names just suit the gorgeous muted yarn colours perfectly, so you could find yourself knitting with Mulberry, Sea Glass, Rose Quartz or Lichen, or any of the other colours.

We have samples in the shop for you to try, our particular favourite is Hermione, or is it Pandora (comes with a free pattern), or another, it’s so difficult to decide sometimes!
