Calling all Yarnaholics!

Welcome to the world of fibre obsession and yarnivores. We are an independent UK based design studio where we are obsessed by everything from fleece to fibre & beyond.

Wool is our passion

Each design is a moment captured in time and is inspired by the beauty, myth and magic of these British Isles. Each Lace Knittery yarn and fibre is hand painted using acid dye techniques or naturally dyed often using foraged materials from the garden, kitchen and around the studio.

We stock heritage brands, our own patterns and hand painted and natural dyed yarn and fibre as well as premium fibres for felting and spinning.

Commitment to heritage, premium natural fibres, promoting traditional skills and ethical production are at the heart of everything we do. All The Lace Knittery products are produced in house in Somerset.
