CH 253: Edinburgh Yarn Festival Plans and Dreams…

Amanda —  March 8, 2019 — Leave a comment

I am counting down the days to EYF! I know a lot of my listeners are too, and other are counting on podcasts and social media to help them live vicariously, so today I’m doing a bit of daydreaming about some of the vendors I am particularly looking forward to visiting this year. I also have some more details about the two Curious Handmade shawl patterns that will debut at this year’s festival, and the lovely lovely yarn that inspired them.

Show Sponsors:


Alongside an eclectic yarn range, which includes Hazel Knits, Icelandic Lopi & CoopKnits, we stock a carefully chosen selection of needles and notions. We’ve also recently launched ‘hand dyed by meadowyarn’, our very own in-house, hand-dyed yarn range. Working in our tiny dye studio, nestled in the Suffolk countryside, we are able to indulge our love of colour, producing complex tonal, kettle-dyed shades across a range of weights and bases. With regular updates our collections evolve and grow, inspired by the landscape and people around us.


AYS is a wool boutique specialising in hand dyed yarns and luxury fibres from around the world. You’ll always find a well curated collection of yarns and colors on the shelves and a friendly knowledgeable staff on hand. Some of our favourite brands include Hedgehog Fibres, SweetGeorgia Yarn, Julie Asselin, Shibui Knits and The Fibre Co. You can find A Yarn Story on Walcot Street in Bath or online at
