Introducing five fantastic independent retailers, offering the finest yarns for your projects this year!
1. Fine Fettle Fibres
Tucked away in the beautiful Northumberland village of Felton, Fine Fettle Fibres offers a wide range of British and Fair Trade yarn in natural fibres, many from small independent producers, and all the very best contemporary knitting books and patterns to inspire your creativity.

2. Yarn from Cotswold Alpacas
Our alpaca yarn is produced slowly and with care. It begins in the fields with happy and calm alpacas that are a special part of our family. We are passionate about our high welfare standards, ethical farming and sustainability. Cotswold Alpaca Yarn is soft, light and warm and we dye our yarns gently so that every batch is irresistibly beautiful and unique.
3. The Yarn Dispensary
Friendly, accommodating, inclusive, warm and woolly: this unique yarn shop, specialising in natural fibres, is as popular for its welcoming atmosphere as it is for its yarn. From commercial to single-flock yarn, needles to notions, kits to homewares, we’re a fibre-crafter’s haven you’ll love to visit.

Beautiful Knitters is a yarn shop online and in the heart of London. We seek out and carefully source a wide variety of yarns, primarily from the UK and Europe. We have an eco and artisanal mindset and much of our yarn comes from small artisanal hand dyers and uses organic and/or natural fibres.
