British Knitting & Crochet Awards 2020 - Trade


This year saw the introduction of a new and exciting trade element to the British Knitting & Crochet Awards and companies from all over the world were invited to enter their brands and products to be reviewed by our expert judges.

Online knitting giant Deramores showed its impressive reach and was chosen as International Brand of the Year, while indie dyer Made By Penguins was picked as Best New Business. Fellow indie yarn brand McIntosh Yarn also made a strong showing and was highly commended in two categories.

An awareness of environmental issues has led to a shift in focus across the industry and we are pleased to announce that HeartSpun 4ply by Woolly Chic was named as the Sustainable/Eco Product of the Year.
