Top Independent Yarn Brands for 2022

Top Independent Yarn Brands for 2022

A round up of some of the best independent yarn brands for your knitting fix

Here at Let’s Knit HQ we love shopping with independent brands and enjoying the unique products, brilliant customer service, and squish-worthy yarns that they offer. Here are a few of the best on the block!



Creating great-value yarns that are versatile for both knitters and crocheters is very much at the heart of the Woolyhippo brand. Choose from super chunky, chunky, DK and 4ply yarns for creating garments, accessories, homewares and toys for the whole family. Our best-selling Dazzle range is perfect for adding that touch of sparkle to your projects this year! 

BareFaced Knits


BareFaced Knits, created by knitwear designer Jo Storie, is a sustainable British wool and alpaca blend in four classic shades as well as a limited-edition hand-painted collection called Smudge. All yarns are fully supported with original designs, available as downloadable patterns, knit kits and as a ready-to-wear collection.


Chilla Valley Alpacas

Chilla Valley Alpacas is based in the beautiful county of Cornwall and offers chunky, DK, 4ply and aran-weight yarns, which are created using the super soft fibres from the brand’s own much-loved herd of alpacas. The Chilla Valley Colours 4ply range includes three fantastic bright shades perfect for spring and summer projects, whilst the scrumptious Pumpkin Pie shade is ideal for the autumn. 


Stitch & Story

Stitch & Story has dropped its yarn prices by 25% to keep people crafting, offering affordable luxury yarns. The popular brand has even put together £20 grab bags for its core yarns with six free knitting or crochet patterns, and don’t miss the collaboration collections with Snoopy, Hello Kitty and more. Plus, a brand-new Disney collab is coming later in 2022!


Black Isle Yarns

Julie Rutter has built Black Isle Yarns on a passion for truly local wool. Working with trusted farmers, Julie chooses each fleece personally, has it spun at a British mill and then dyes each skein using foraged and other plant material. The result is lively, woolly yarns that glow with the natural beauty of the Scottish Highlands.
