Today on the podcast I have one more peek forward at the EYF, which is happening this weekend, and then dive into a review of the latest gorgeous collaboration between super talented designers Joji Locatelli and Veera Välimäki. As a special 5th anniversary treat, they’ve paired each of the patterns in their Interpretations Vol. 5 collection with a custom colourway from a wonderful indie dyer. I fall in love with some of these very special yarns and try my best to narrow down my favourite patterns from the book. Be sure to listen for your chance to win a copy of Interpretations Vol. 5 in our giveaway!

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 specializing 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 favorite 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
