We are passionate about colour. We are believers in individuality. We are champions of creativity. We are Posh Yarn.

Since 2006, we’ve been bringing colour and luxury to the needles of knitters around the world. Our extensive yarn range has been carefully chosen, so that you can work with the very best materials. Our colourways are created to excite and inspire. We believe that every project you work on should be a pocket of joy, of comfort, of deep satisfaction.

Trudie & Tony Bamford are the heart, soul and hands behind Posh Yarn. Trudie is an artist and published writer, with a lifelong passion for textile arts. She founded Posh Yarn in 2006, and Tony joined her soon after, proving to be a brilliant colourist and innovative dyer. Posh Yarn HQ is located in a quiet spot in the Welsh countryside. From this idyllic location, the yarn, lovingly hand dyed in small batches, is shipped to knitters around the world.

One of the most exciting changes we have made in recent times has been the introduction of commissioned colourways, such as the one pictured here. This customer wanted some mohair/silk in a stormy sea theme. We absolutely love collaborating with customers like this, creating completely one of a kind colourways. Do you have an idea for a colourway that you just can’t get out of your head? Get in touch, let’s make that dream a reality!
