Knitters and crocheters can find a selection of knitting yarns in our Yarns section. The Ashford Tekapo DK wool knitting yarns are available in a choice of bold colours plus a range of natural tones, plus there are the super soft Bluefaced Leicester aran yarns in a choice of natural shades, plain dyed and printed patterns alongside the Bluefaced Leicester double knit yarns also in a choice of natural shades.
Knitters looking for luxury will love the spun silk yarns which are available in different weights, while the experimental knitter will enjoy the choice of paper yarns, metallised yarns and soft wires.
Many of the yarns offered on the George Weil website are undyed to give crafters the opportunity of creating their own variegated yarns or the option of dyeing the yarn to a specific colour. We recommend dyeing yarns with protein content, such as wool and silk, with Acid dyes and yarns with cellulose content, such as cotton, paper and bamboo, with Procion MX fibre reactive dyes. These sythetic dyes offer a safe and simple method for dyeing materials at home.
