This month we’re celebrating the unique properties of British wool with our eighth annual Best of British issue! Britain has long held a reputation for producing some of the best wool in the world, and our favourite yarn companies are proving that our reputation is still well-deserved. As you flip through this issue, look out for the ‘Meet your yarn’ boxes on each pattern, which tell you a little bit of the story of each yarn. I love using British wool not only because it’s beautiful to work with, but also because it reduces my carbon footprint because the yarn hasn’t had to travel far from the sheep to my needles. I also love supporting businesses that are run by people I know and trust, such as West Yorkshire Spinners – you can read all about our day out at the factory inside.

Inside this issue you’ll find projects to suit all budgets and skill levels, which each showcase a stunning locally-made yarn. If you’re an adventurous knitter, you’ll love the Helena Rose stole, which is knitted from a stunning hand-dyed yarn. As a history buff, I love the inspiration behind the Tylwyth Jumper and the finished garment is just perfect. For an affordable little knit, why not try the Orlando baby cardigan? It’s knitted in great-value machine-washable yarn from Home Farm Wensleydales.

The world of British wool is really vibrant right now, so you’ll find plenty to read in this issue. Zoë Potrac is busting some myths around sheep-shearing and we caught up with designer Ella Doran to find out her woolly story. Finally, if your stash needs a little boost, don’t miss your chance to enter our biggest-ever giveaway.
