West Yorkshire Spinners Illustrious

West Yorkshire Spinners are an amazing brand! I love their ethos and their yarns are always lovely to work with, after designing 3 funky sock patterns in the signature 4ply I was approached with the new UK Alpaca, Falklands wool blend. This yarn soft, wearable and practical, you fall in love with the palette instantly. When I was asked to design a collection for this yarn I had MANY ideas and couldn't wait to get them down onto paper and here is the result....

These are a few of my favourite! I was very pleased with how the photo shoot went, we made a great team :) I did the styling myself and the lovely Jess (the model) was a dream to work with. You wouldn't know if was pouring it down with rain around us!
Please check out the rest of the project in the book by visiting the WYS website and check your local stockists for the book. Oh and don't forget to tag your projects with #emmaknitted and #emmawrightforWYS or share them via the WYSpinners or Emmaknitted Ravelry group.

I look forward to seeing your projects!
