Carrie WarrPeak District Yarns is run by me, Carrie Warr, in my studio in Tideswell, a village in the heart of the Peak District National Park in the north of England.  I pride myself on producing small batches of delicious yarn, inspired by the colours and the landscapes of the countryside around me.

My yarn is offered for sale via three main channels:

  • The Peak District Yarns website
  • Independent shops – see Stockists page.  If you are an independent shop and would like to stock my yarn, please do get in contact.
  • Occasional shows and craft fairs – please keep an eye on the News page for any upcoming shows.  You can also check out my Facebook page which will also tell you about events.


I appreciate that it can sometimes be tricky buying yarn from a website without being able to feel the skeins.  And whilst I do take a lot of care to get true colours in my photographs, there are so many variables (my camera, your screen, lighting etc) which can influence the pictures.  Because of this, I always offer a no quibble guarantee – if you’re not happy with your yarn when it arrives, you can return it for a replacement or refund (provided you haven’t unskeined it, of course).  Please contact me first to arrange how to do this.

Commissions:  I dye most of my colourways in batches of just one or two skeins.  If you are after a larger quantity, I’m more than happy to take on commissions.  Just drop me an email with what you’re after and we can have a chat!  Similarly, if you are after a particular type of yarn and can’t find it on the website, let me know and I can see what I can do.

I always love to see the creations which my crafty customers make from Peak District Yarns.  If you have pictures to share, please pop over to my Facebook page and show them off in their full glory.  On Facebook, you’ll also get an insight into the dyeing process and random musings from my studio (*).

(*) By the way, “studio” is a rather grand description for an outhouse in my back garden.  It is not open to the public.  However, I am always happy to meet up in a local café with people who want to see (and, importantly, squish!) my yarns if we can make diaries work.  Weekends are best for me due to work commitments – just get in touch if you’re planning to be in the area and fancy meeting up.
