KETTLE YARN CO.
Tell us a little about Kettle Yarn Co.
Nestled on the south coast of England, I am a one-woman business aiming to support British sheep farmers, while safeguarding animals and the environment. Kettle Yarn Co. was born of a passion for luscious yarns, rich colours and the practical desire for long-lasting garments that stand the test of time. My goal is that my yarns will always be a pleasure to knit, wear and will look amazing for years to come, for others – like me – who believe fashion shouldn’t be disposable.
What can knitters find at your shop?
I’ve select soft, low-pilling, durable British fibres for yarns produced without mulesing, and the few superwash yarns I carry are coated in resin that will break down along with the wool should it end up in landfill. My Baskerville and Northiam blends are sourced, scoured, spun in a British mill, then dyed in my kitchen. My Islington, Beyul and Hythe yarns are produced in Peru in an ethical mill that supports the local economy and community.
What will be your highlights for 2021?
I have lots of great things planned this year, like exclusive yarn clubs, including the collaborative Yarn Talks Club with Helen at The Wool Kitchen. I also have design collaborations in the works and will be releasing my second cardigan, Beodan, in my hand-dyed Beyul DK – a baby yak, silk and Merino blend.
