Zandra designs bespoke-colour yarns made in collaboration with West Yorkshire Spinners for Winter ’21/22
We are delighted to team up with West Yorkshire Spinners to work in a new way, embracing their state-of-the-art dyeing techniques and processes to create this colourful collection. Zandra’s signature method has always been to use textiles printed with silk screen from her own designs.
Zandra’s starting point was to create a core palette of solid colours, experimenting with different combinations and a digital painting technique to create six unique, playful designs.
West Yorkshire Spinner’s craftspeople brought Zandra’s vision to life using innovative space-dye and spray printing technology, coupled with decades of expertise, to create a six-shade collection available in two of their most loved British yarns: ColourLab DK and Signature 4ply.
Unmistakeably Zandra Rhodes in colour and appearance, these bold and exotic yarns beautifully showcase her fun and distinctive personality.
In approaching this collection, Zandra wanted every piece to make a statement. Inspired by her classic knitwear designs from the 1980s, she reimagined them for us with new twists and fresh looks, as well as creating some striking accessories and fabulous socks. These can be found in the pattern book which can be purchased, along with the yarns at www.wyspinners.com and at all good retailers.
The designs use Zandra’s ColourLab DK and Signature 4ply prints, accented with some of our vibrant, classic solid shades. She encourages you to experiment with different colour combinations to create your own unique designer knitwear.
“There really is something for everyone in this collection. I want those who knit my garments to feel happy and excited. I’m hoping knitters who might not have worn Zandra Rhodes before will now create and wear my magical prints.”
