About Erika Knight

Erika Knights Wool Local yarn range is made with 100% British Wool. This collection is concise and considered with fibres and colours carefully selected so that you can be confident in choosing a beautiful, quality yarn for whatever you wish to create.

Erikas' ethos has always been to keep things simple: to support British manufacturing where possible, to promote sustainable, natural fibres and to celebrate traditional skills. Having worked in the textile industry for most of her career and in many different guises, she is passionate about innovation and heritage in equal balance. 

The catalyst for creating her own yarn collection was to support the British heritage of textile mills and to promote native sheep breeds. From fleece to finished yarn in less than 50 miles, Wool Local is both authentically British and environmentally sustainable. Starting at the British wool auction, the wool is scoured, combed, spun, dyed, steamed and hanked in the county of Yorkshire.
