McIntosh® and Deramores are proud to announce an exclusive online partnership. McIntosh is the award-winning and highly celebrated natural-fibre, pure wool and yarn brand that promotes well-being through the joy of mindful knitting®.
From 1st October, MY BFL – their hugely popular 100% British Bluefaced Leicester wool - and FABULOUS – the exciting new McIntosh yarn spun from a blend of British Bluefaced Leicester and Grade A Mulberry Silk – will be available at Deramores in DK and 4-Ply.
Both ranges have been accredited by British Wool with the ‘Shepherd’s Crook Mark’ confirming this hand knitting wool is pure British wool. McIntosh wool has been lovingly hand-dyed in the UK. What’s more, these stunning yarns come complete with a sew-on label containing care instructions, so you can care for your beautiful creations the right way and wear your label with pride.
James McIntosh says: “To have been approached by Deramores is humbling. I started McIntosh after realising hand knitting could get me out of depression and allow me to regain my life again, a process I call “Knititation®”. To be able to partner with Deramores to spread the word about good mental health through hand knitting and crochet is an honour”.
Clowance Lawton, Head of Digital Operations at Deramores, says: “We are thrilled to be working with James, his ideas and values align so well with our own – it’s a very natural partnership! We love that each skein of McIntosh yarn has been hand-dyed in the UK, creating a yarn range that is as unique as our customers, allowing them to live a more colourful life.”
