Meet Willow & Lark: A Splendidly British Brand

Introducing a delectably British new brand! Willow & Lark brings out the best of British style and design and will delight you with its quirky colour palette and deliciously soft yarns!

Willow & Lark yarns celebrate classic Britishness in all its glory, from apple crumbles and lemon drizzle cake to striding out in wellies through the woodland or marching around a castle. These bright new yarns with accompanying patterns have been crafted and designed to reflect the delightful quirkiness of Britain – evoking natural landscapes in the colour palette, and original thinking in design.

Meet the yarns!

Ramble, wool, wool and more wool

Ramble

Full of loft and character, this super soft DK superwash wool is robust, with a good twist and exemplary stitch definition. It’ll keep you as warm as toast, and its glorious colour palette is full of character! Perfect for colourwork – combine Bluebell and Lichen Green, Rhubarb Pink with Lemon Drizzle – it’s a crochet dream! Dream of whimsical cardigans, tapestry crochet cushions and fabulous scarves, hats and blankets!

Woodland, a tweed with a twist

Delicious tweed shot through with dappled neps of colour, Woodland has a twist of alpaca to give a softer handle than other tweed yarns. A must for favourite jumpers you can curl into, and cardigans you won’t want to take off, fabulous cushions and accessories for your home.  The twist is defined enough to bring plump definition to crochet stitches and cables, in a colour palette of shades inspired by Britishness, from the rich tones Marmalade, Thunder and Thistle Bud to bright Foxglove and Bluebell – and the exquisitely whimsical Plover Grey and Rolled Oats.
