Our Story

George and Louise are the Yarn Garden team

Based based in the UK at Northumberland Yarn Garden is an artisan hand dyer of luxury yarns and wools which have been attended to in a scientific approach to hand dyeing. As a trained chemist George, the dyer, knows how to properly handle and nurture the yarns, drying them naturally and slowly to protect the fibre structure from damage to maintain the softness of the yarn. Think of fine wine and aged cheese, they can’t be hurried and neither can the very best wool.

Yarn Garden is fully committed to promoting the benefits of wool, being an Official Supporter of the Campaign for Wool. Our bases are blends of luxury fibres and wool and pure wools including British wools such as Blue Faced Leicester which is a breed that originated from our region in Hexham. like Corriedale and some are rare breeds such as Teeswater from Durham in the North East . We encourage our customers to try British wools.

We began Yarn Garden August 2013 and since then George has experimented in gaining different dye effects by playing with temperatures, dye additions, timings, salts and resists.

We have Knit Kits which are produced in close conjunction with Katya Frankel an internationally published knitting author who lives in our locality and Crochet Kits by Rachel Barlow.

The patterns are graded to an recognised skill standard so you can be confident that the pattern you choose is appropriate for you.

Yarn Garden also have a wide range of interesting high quality books on knitting, crochet and spinning.

We  also have the cutest woolly soaps
