Yarn Retreats

What’s your idea of heaven? How about a weekend full of knitting and crochet, learning new skills, surrounded by luxury yarns? Add in a gorgeous seaside location on the beautiful Jurassic Coast, and beautiful accommodation. Tempted? You should be!

Yarn Retreats run  throughout the year in early spring and late autumn. Each weekend will include workshops on how to dye your yarn, creating beautiful unique colourways, learning techniques you can easily recreate at home. You can chose to come to a yarn retreat, full of yarn, knitting, crochet and spinning, with a creative workshop on a new skill. Alternatively why not indulge your love of crochet with Dedri Uys on a crochet retreat, or improve your knitting skills on a retreat with skilled knitting designers like Woolly Wormhead and Rachel Coopey.

The weekend takes place in a lovely house just five minutes walk from the sea at Lyme Regis. Stunning luxury accommodation with sea views, and plenty of room to relax, you will love your time on the Jurassic Coast. Choose to stay in your own room, or share a twin room with a friend and save.

After a full weekend of yarny goodness, you will take home a goody bag full of treats including all the items you have made, hand dyed yarn,  and some special things to remember your weekend by.

What guests have said about the retreats:

‘It was a fab weekend & we made some beautiful things thanks to Daisy’s brilliant guidance! Lyme Regis is beautiful too & the house was stunning. Felt very at home. The carrot cake was to die for as well…. ‘ Claire, April 2015

‘Was a wonderful weekend- highly recommended!’ Sarah, January 2015

‘The retreat in April was my first and one of the best weekends I have ever had. Daisy is lovely. Food was fantastic. Lyme is beautiful and the dyeing workshops were simply amazing. I came back inspired, relaxed, refreshed and having made some very good new friends.’ Sara April 2015

‘This weekend was the best. I felt so relaxed and welcome – a home from home without the housekeeping. Back home with enough inspiration to get me through my yarn stash for the next 6 mths. Thank you Daisy,Dedri, and the yarnies. I will be back!’ Clare October 2015

‘I have had the most amazing weekend with Daisy and Dedri. There was not a moment I didn’t love. Early morning walking on the beach (finding fossils), back for a delicious breakfast followed by yarn dying, yummy lunch, crochet, exploring Lyme, making crochet hooks, crochet, dinner, crochet. Combined with excellent company it was bliss. I will be back next year’ Alison November 2015
