We are so pleased that our new festival friends Loch Ness Knit Fest will be joining us at Yarningham this year.
They will be sharing all things Loch Ness Knit Fest with you including their fabulous marketplace, workshop programme and festival capers.
Just like them you can take advantage of a new direct flight between Birmingham and Inverness. It’s easier than you think.
Loch Ness Knit Fest will be in our new social area ready to answer questions about their festival and tell you their best Nessie stories.
We are delighted to announce a last minute addition to this year’s Yarningham marketplace, Garthenor.
Garthenor’s mission is to promote and provide a variety of sustainable, organic & British wool products in an ecologically responsible way. Their aim is to help secure the future of British organic agriculture and the British textile industry.
Garthenor source, produce and sell Certified organic wool products, including yarn, fleece and bespoke knitwear. All the wool you’ll see with their name on it has been certified to global organic standards.
Garthenor was started in the 1990s, with wool produced from their own sheep. They’ve since expanded faster than their flock, and they now buy raw fleeces from around the UK directly from the farmer – no middle man, which means all their wool is fully traceable from sheep to jumper.
Due to circumstances beyond our control we are sorry to announce that both Three Violet Buttons and Norah George are no longer able to exhibit at this year’s Yarningham.
On the bright side it gives us an excuse to post a picture of David Bowie’s album Hunky Dory.
