Having long championed the positive benefits of knitting on health and happiness, West Yorkshire Spinners is delighted to be partnering with national mental health charity, Mind, in the launch of their Re:treat yarn. Re:treat was developed with well-being in mind.
The yarn has a silky smooth finish that slides easily off the needle for a relaxing experience that helps knitters unwind. In calming and uplifting tones and marled colourways, Re:treat helps crafters create a little stress-free oasis where they can enjoy making something beautiful.
West Yorkshire Spinners are donating 50 pence to Mind for every kilo of Re:treat yarn sold so knitters will also be helping to support this wonderful charity whose mission is to provide advice and support to those with a mental health problem.
Mind also campaigns to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding, as well as research. Mind’s tips for maintaining a positive wellbeing include taking time for yourself, doing something you enjoy and find relaxing. Crafting ticks all of those boxes and many studies have shown a positive link between knitting and good mental health. Research has also highlighted clinical benefits too, such as reducing depression and anxiety, and slowing the onset of dementia.
