From West Yorkshire Spinners, this luxurious yarn has all the great natural qualities of roving with a delicate twist and gentle halo ideal for creating beautiful knitting and crochet. Made with 100% British Bluefaced Kerry Hill fleece (a cross-breed of Bluefaced Leicester), Retreat Chunky Roving was developed with wellbeing in mind, and has been spun with skill and care to offer a wool that is soft, silky and a treat to wear. Use it to create luxury sweaters, cardigans, hats and scarves, or make beautiful blankets, throws and cushion covers for your home.
From carding and combing to spinning and dyeing, the majority of our processes are carried out within a 20-mile radius of our in-house facilities in Keighley, Yorkshire. This substantially reduces our carbon footprint and guarantees our customers can craft with a clean conscience. West Yorkshire Spinners is also proud to work with Falkland Islands farmers and sustainable businesses, such as Jamieson & Smith to source the fibres for our wool collections.
