Whistlebare's Yarns Around Northumberland

Join us as we ramble around Northumberland with tales of by-gone times together with images, yarns and patterns to bring them to life!

Our 'Yarns Around Northumberland' will be released on our blog on the last Friday of every month but will be sent out in our Newsletter on Thursday.  The colours will be limited edition so we want to give our lovely subscribers, first dibs!

For our first month join us at Hadrian's Wall for tales of Centurians and Barbarians with Stella Ackroyd's beautiful 'Border Ballad Scarf' knitted in our own Yeavering Bell aran (Newsletter will be sent 26th January 2017, blog released 27th January 2017).
