Launches To Look Out For At Yarndale

This weekend is Yarndale, an annual extravaganza of wool in the market town of Skipton, North Yorkshire, which coincides well with the onset of Autumn when knitter's thoughts turn to warm woollies.

Yarndale runs on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th September from 10am to 4.30pm. Show-goers can pre-book tickets online or pay on the door at extra cost.

If you're lucky enough to be going, look out for the following launches and grab your chance to be one of the first to get your hands on new products.

Marie Wallin's British Breeds

Debuting at Yarndale is Marie Wallin's own wool range with 12 shades, designed to support her gorgeous colour work designs. An online gift box pre-order containing all 12 shades sold out quickly on Wallin's website.

Wallin will also be launching her latest pattern book Wildwood at Yarndale. If you can't make it to the show Wildwood, like British Breeds and the gift box, will be available on Marie Wallin's website on 1st October.

Daughter of a Shepherd's Castlemilk Moorit

This new yarn comes from 100% Castlemilk Moorit, an 'at risk' sheep breed.

It's a DK yarn in its natural shade that the Daughter describes evocatively as "earthy tones of burnt caramel and dark spices with flashes of silver that give the yarn a natural melange". The price is £18 per 100g skein and, if you can't make it to Yarndale, it will go on sale on Daughter of a Shepherd's website from Wednesday, 3rd October.

Ann Kingstone's Needle Sizer

On her Facebook page Yorkshire designer Ann Kingstone let slip that her new accessory product will make its debut at Yarndale.

No word yet as to cost, but take a look at Kingstone's website after the festival to see if it has gone on sale.

Baa Baa Brighouse Cowl or Scarf Pattern

Fiona Wardingley's Cowl or Scarf pattern, where you can choose which to knit, is going on sale for the first time at Baa Baa Brighouse's Yarndale stall.

The only detail we have so far is this tantalising photo of Jane's dog asleep on her lap while she sews her design up!

Her stand is G96 and the book costs £10. If you're not going to Yarndale you can buy it from The Knitting Goddess' online shop.

There are probably lots more new yarns and patterns to look out for that have slipped under my radar. Are you going to Yarndale? Which stalls are you excited about visiting? Let us know in the comments box below or on our Facebook page.
