Yarndale Barbara Yarn

In July 2020, we began a collaboration with West Yorkshire Spinners to produce our own Hope Yarn which incorporated the colours of our 2020 sheep, Hope, in an exclusive colourway.

Following the success of Yarndale’s Hope Yarn and the love that you have shown towards the range, we have now developed, together with West Yorkshire Spinners, a new exclusive colourway taking inspiration from our lovely Barbara sheep from 2019.

The rich palette of our new Barbara Yarn consists of bright pinks and blue with a burst of sunny orange and mustard in a stunning stripy pattern.

The wool is 75% Wool and 25% Nylon, with the wool content containing 35% luxurious Bluefaced Leicester making it one of the most sumptuous 4 Ply products on the market. Not only does it make great sock yarn due to its hardwearing properties, but it is also extremely soft and lustrous at the same time.

Our multi-coloured Barbara Yarn is available to buy on our website in a Yarndale Barbara Sock Kit with the kit comprising one beautiful yarn ball and a Barbara Zip Project Bag, or as individual balls.

We are also delighted to announce that we have a new range of yarn to complement our Barbara Yarn. The 3 stunning colours of Cardamom, Nutmeg and Blackcurrant Bomb are available now in our shop. 

Blueberry Bonbon and Butterscotch are also a perfect complement to Barbara. Butterscotch is currently out of stock, however we are working hard to ensure that it will be available very soon.
