Seven years ago today a lot of us turned to knitting for solace. The world hasn't slowed down much since then. The faster it spins, the more I seek yarns that bring me closer to people and places—yarns that make me feel part of something greater than myself.
I know I'm not alone. Even large yarn companies are catching on. This week we look at the earthy and robust yarns from Rowan's new Purelife British Sheep Breeds collection, which tell the story of British hill farmers and Yorkshire mills, of a centuries-old textile tradition that is threatened by an increasingly global economy.
