Unthank Road

Yarn Fictions collections are all about the melding of words and wool, both things we hold dear, and putting together our first collection has been a lot of fun. We’ve developed a coordinated palette across six yarn bases, some new, some familiar, all inspired by an original short story. 

These collections are dyed in small, single-release batches and are not repeatable. If you see something you love, don't hesitate! Stories will be available for download from an archive once the yarn collection is no longer available.

‘Unthank Road’ follows the unwelcome adventure of Horace. Download the short story, or read it on-line, and then knit with shades inspired by it.

And, if you're wondering whether the biggest, loudest lad had a guilty conscience, intrigued by Horace's vivid dreams or want to know a bit more about Miss Hilary Booth... Well, you might find one of the little extra story snippets that we've tucked inside the ball band of some of the Unthank Road skeins.
