2018 marks the ten year anniversary of Kelbourne Woolens and we are celebrating this milestone with something we have been dreaming about for a long, long time: Our own line of quality, affordable, classic yarns.
Our years of crafting, working in yarn shops, speaking with our wholesale customers, and meeting thousands of knitters and crocheters at workshops, events, and book signings have inspired us to create a line of yarns with one idea in mind:
In celebration of our ten year anniversary, we will be launching a small selection of yarns throughout the next year. Each season will bring a new Kelbourne Woolens yarn to celebrate all the things we love most about knitting, crochet, and our community.
We are delighted to introduce our first Kelbourne Woolens brand yarn, Andorra, to the market. This premiere yarn, released on the eve of the Winter solstice, is a blend of Merino and Highland wool, with just a touch of mohair to add luster, strength, and weightlessness.
Andorra is designed by Courtney, and we’ve been calling it “Courtney’s Yarn” in the office all fall. The fiber content, weight, spin, and colors are exactly what Courtney dreams of in a yarn – and we hope you love it as much as we do.
Designed with a vintage feel in a gorgeous color palette, Andorra is perfect for garments and accessories alike.

From all of us, to all of you:
Thank you for all of your support over the last ten years! We couldn’t have done this without you.
