As you may know, John is not only a spinner of yarn, but also records. This got us thinking that it would be wonderful to create a yarn range inspired by his eclectic record collection – everything from punk to funk. We had a cracking evening when John played us Mill folk a few of his favourites and, whilst sipping a few glasses of chilled wine, we all wrote down the colour each song evoked. Then the hand carders came out and we began creating shades to illustrate the sentiment of each song – and thus the palette for Yarnadelic was born. We hope you’ll find the 18 melange shades inspiring.

We’ve been listening to some of the tracks John selected on repeat since he first played them to us. Each of the shades in this range is named after a specific track. Click here to visit our Yarnadelic Spotify playlist with some of the songs that inspired us and Click here to get your hands on John’s Soundcloud mix. So sit back and click those needles, wave those hooks and tap that treadle to the beat!
