At West Yorkshire Spinners, experimenting and developing British yarns is their passion. So to create this amazing garment collection they commissioned four talented designers to join them in a unique collaboration of their ideas and the new Colour Lab DK.
Emma Vining, Francesca Hughes, Rosee Woodland and Helen Metcalfe - have each brought their own distinctive individual styles to the project. The result is a formula for success - and a diverse range of fantastic patterns for you to create. From Rosee, there is vibrant and playful Scandinavian-inspired designs. Francesca's focus is on contemporary garments in lace-like textures that reveal the charm of neutral shades. Helen celebrates strong shapes using cable and bramble stitch whilst Emma re-invents the classics in beautiful bold shades and intricate cabling.
Inspired by the great stitch definition and 18 bright solid shades of Colour Lab DK yarns, our collaborators have designed 8 original women's handknits in 100% British wool for you to create at home.
We hope you enjoy Collaboration in Design.
It's a little bit of science - and a lot of magic.
