About The Woolbarn:

They are a small artisan hand dyed yarn company based in Hertfordshire, England. The Wool Barn was born out of love for knitting with high quality yarns and luxury fibres. We use traditional kettle dyeing methods and enjoying the slow process of making small batches of uniquely hand dyed yarns. From the very beginning they placed great emphases on sourcing only the best quality yarns from trusted UK suppliers that care for animal welfare and sustainability. Equally, their yarn dyeing process has been designed to have a minimum impact of the environment, while our packaging is 100% recyclable or biodegradable. As with anything hand made, every batch and every skein of yarn that they make is truly unique, this is what they say, makes hand dyed yarn such wonderful and exciting material to work with.
