Fashion Yarn

Perfect for those fashion conscious wool wearers, fashion yarns produce garments that are the height of sophisticated elegance. With the British wool industry advancing and expanding at an alarmingly fast rate, due to fresh movements in the world of trending, fashion wool is now in high demand. Media sources are advertising and promoting innovative knitwear designs, by world renowned names such as Vivienne Westwood, which often incorporate different styles of modern fashion yarns. Often associated with its eco-friendliness and durability, fashion wool is the coveted textile of choice for worldwide designers in Milan, Paris, New York and various other glamorous destinations.

Strengthened by emerging technologies, the manufacturing of a flourishing array of fashion yarns has created incredibly impressive possibilities for knitting prospects over the years.  For centuries, knitting was solely a rare and specialist talent. It developed through the gradual process of economic change into a required skill which one needed in order to provide for their family. However, most garments created were plain and utilitarian, and soon most knitters desired brighter and bolder choices in regards to texture, colour and fibres. Fortunately, many wool producers responded to the aspirations of the public, and so, fashion wool was brought to life.

In contrast to previous beliefs that wool was an outdated tradition that should be made redundant, presently, wool is seen as a lustrous fibre of versatility that can be used in fabulous fashion, modern furnishings and everyday life. Although at first seeming somewhat similar to traditional yarn, fashion yarns are in fact formed out of manmade fibres, which are effortless to work with, more hardwearing, easier to wash and now available in a stunning selection of finishes. Allowing for authentic originality that simply cannot be bought from any store, fashion knitting yarns are positively astounding. Made out of fibres including silk, acrylic, angora, cotton, merino wool, nylon, llama, alpaca and plenty more, each yarn is extraordinarily different and has its own personality. At Black Sheep Wools, we sell a great selection of beautiful fashion wool, each being flawless in its own right.
