A trio of multicoloured yarn skeins by River Knits

We sell a wide range of high quality British wool yarns that we hand dye in our studio in rural Northamptonshire. We love to create colourways inspired by our life on the UK waterways that you will want to knit, crochet, weave, wear, and enjoy. We have a strong focus on sustainable sourcing and natural fibres. That’s why all RiverKnits wool yarn comes from British breeds and almost all of it is spun in the UK too. We’ve been dyeing for a number of years and our methods enable us to bring you saturated, highly repeatable and very wearable colourways.

Our most beloved yarns are the variegated colourways we do in fingering and DK weight. The tonals and semi-solids are very popular with garment knitters and crocheters. You can pick and mix from our rainbow mini skein wall, which is bursting with 78 different colours! Come and see our new magically-marled Chimera yarn, it’s hours of fun packed into a skein, and we have kits and pattern ideas for you too.
