This month we''re celebrating homegrown and homespun yarns. We explore where yarn comes from: where the sheep (or goats, or alpacas, or rabbits) live, how they are treated and whether farming is sustainable or intensive. Plus, we proudly bring you 23 designs made in Britain – including Louisa Harding's beautiful lace tunic in Yarntelier's Cashmere Lace, exclusive to Knitting.
Our Children & Toys styling is wonderfully whimsical; there's fun bunny slippers to knit, a gansey for tiny tots, and an amusing unicorn cushion for trendy teens - and if it's accessories you're after, then knit a gorgeous Butterfly Hat and Mittens or a Skeleton Scarf. As well as the latest knitting news, inspirations, fashion, reviews, Purl about town and Yoga for knitters.
Find out how knitting really begins at home in the June issue of Knitting!
