CH 254: Memories, High Fashion, and More EYF Dreams

Today I have a big chatty episode to share with you. I’ve had a lovely visit here in London with two good friends: we went to visit the incredible Dior exhibit at the V&A museum and filled ourselves up with beauty and inspiration. I’m also finding that there’s a lot of feelings coming up for me in the last few weeks! And of course, there’s more planning and yarn-obsessing to do ahead of EYF. I also have news about a little goodbye event I’m holding in Bath.

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
