Originating from the heart of the Artisan Quarter in the beautiful city of Bath, UK, this brand took its name from the place where their story began, Walcot Street. Launched in 2017, Walcot Yarns was a way for yarn-shop owner Carmen Schmidt to put her own stamp on the yarn world. Her goal was to create a unique brand to sell in her store, A Yarn Story, and make something she knew her customers would love. It was an opportunity to get creative and combine her love of colour with carefully sourced fibres to create wool for yarn-lovers like herself.
Beautifully luxurious and extremely wearable, Walcot Yarns is designed for those who want to make, wear and love long-lasting, heirloom pieces as well as garments for everyday use.
Finally, in the spirit of sustainability and slow fashion, Walcot Yarns takes the creative experience straight into the hands of the maker, and our aim is to encourage all knitters to create one garment a year. What a wonderful world that would be.
