On July 2011, YarnFest was opened in Hermitage, West Berkshire that sells quality designer yarns in order to suit all tastes as well as budgets that most of the people had. It was founded by Christine and Don Prater. This was actually the first in a series of specialist yarn shops. Cristine is actually a keen knitter with a great experience in complimentary crafts and she also understand the needs of the knitters from all levels of skills. They also hold a variety of workshops that covers knitting from beginners to advanced one as well as courses for the children and some options which includes Crochet, Felting and Weaving as well.

Manos yarn is actually the product of Manos del Uruguay which is a non-profit organization that provides employment to craftswomen in rural areas of Uruguay. There is no denying that Manos yarn is such a beautiful product that produces by those warm striving individuals in order to make their local communities better. This type of yarn is sourced from natural materials that are also interknit with their local economies. Manos wool for an instance is an abundant source for all of the craftswomen of Manos del Uruguay, who also take this Manos wool and then use inherited and traditional skills in order to produce products that are world class.

Aside from that, YarnFest also offer Artesano Aran which is a form of Aran wool. Aran wool is actually named after the said traditional knitting practices of the inhabitants of the Islands of Aran in the place of Western Ireland, not the traditions of Arran Island in Scotland. Other than that, Aran yarn is a thicker ply that some of the other wools are available. This wool was also manufactured originally by those people of the Aran Island wherein it has some specific use as well as purpose in their mind. This was also to be used during the adverse weather that the certain islands often faced, which was being situated at the Irish Atlantic coast in an exposed position.

Moreover, Aran woool is also traditionally unscoured, this only means that the wool retains a lot of its natural oils that helps keep the sheep to be protected during the adversed weather. And these natural oils offer a certain waterproofing to the traditional Aran Island's waterproof fisherman's jumper. Nevertheless, here at YarnFest you can expect that they have a host of yarns that are available for you to choose from. Their products also comes in a range of beautiful colours, wherein some of which are on the brighter side of the spectrum. Enjoy your shopping at their store and then find what it is you are specifically searching for.
