Our yarns

The shop is now closed while I prepare for Edinburgh Yarn Festival.  I’ll have it back up and running later in March – sorry for any inconvenience.

If you are looking for some pattern ideas I have a new blog post with some suggestions – pairing a few favourite patterns with various Black Isle Yarns.

Sustainability, and minimising the impact that Black Isle Yarns has on the environment, is very important to me and so I put a lot of thought into my packaging – you can read more in this recent blog post.
