WYS Re:Treat Chunky Roving

West Yorkshire Spinners  - Re:treat Chunky Roving

With a roving quality and a soft twist that glides off the needles, Re:treat creases smooth, light fabrics with a luxurious silky texture. Re:treat proudly bears the new British Wool logo, a guarantee that it is British to the core from sheep to showroom. The wool selected to make Re:treat comes from an exciting cross breed of Bluefaced Leicester - famous in British hand knitting for its soft handle -  and Kerry Hill – renown for its distinctive markings and clean white fleece.

Craftsmen have used all of their expertise to transform the Bluefaced Kerry Hill fleece into one of West Yorkshire Spinners’ most beautiful and exciting new yarns. Spun with skill and care, Re:treat proudly flies the flag for the unbeatable quality of British yarn today.

In a combination of 15 calming and uplifting harmonious shades - and two marled colour-ways - Re:treat is the perfect yarn to relax and unwind with.


Having long championed the positive benefits of knitting on health and happiness,
West Yorkshire Spinners is delighted to be partnering with national mental health charity, Mind, in the launch of their Re:treat yarn. 

West Yorkshire Spinners are donating 50 pence to Mind for every kilo of Re:treat yarn sold so our knitters will also be helping to support this wonderful charity whose mission is provide advice and support to those with a mental health problem. Mind also campaigns to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding, as well as research.

Mind’s tips for maintaining a positive wellbeing include taking time for yourself, doing something you enjoy and find relaxing. Crafting ticks all of those boxes and many studies have shown a positive link between knitting and good mental health. Research has also highlighted clinical benefits too, such as reducing depression and anxiety, and slowing the onset of dementia.
