Retreat Chunky



From West Yorkshire Spinners, Re:treat - Chunky Roving is a fabulous 100% British wool.  It has a roving quality and a soft twist that creates smooth light fabrics.

Created using fleece from a cross breed of Bluefaced Leicester - famous in British hand knitting for its soft handle -  and Kerry Hill – renowned for its distinctive markings and clean white fleece.

This yarn is also a great choice for felting!

West Yorkshire Spinners (WYS) is one of the few yarn brands in the UK still designing and manufacturing yarn in-house. Most of their fleeces come from suppliers in Bradford and they are processed at their factory in Keighley. Indeed, the whole operation takes place within a 40 mile area, including an on-site dye house.
