West Yorkshire Spinners

Extremely proud of their British Heritage, WYS are one of the few remaining worsted spinning companies left in the United Kingdom. They source all their own raw material which is then produced into knitting yarn at their state of the art factory in West Yorkshire. This reduces the carbon footprint of WYS products and also enables them to manufacture at a very low cost. This means they can pass on the savings to you, our customers!
