Coastalyarns supply locally sourced and hand spun Alpaca yarns from Cornwall.
Complimenting our local supply we have sourced a fantastic range of luxurious and beautiful yarns from leading brands such as Rowan, Fyberspates, and Rooster, which we believe to be among the finest in the world in a range of fantastic colours.
Coastalyarns are located in a brand new unit on the Bude Canal. The unit has been recently converted as part of the Bude Canal regeneration project. Visit the yarn shop and not only enjoy the beautful selection of yarns but stunning views of the sea walks along the canal and the tranquillity of the path.
Bude Canal has a history spanning some 190 years and made up part of a mini-network of waterways on the Devon/Cornwall border.

Rowan Knitting a Crochet Magazine number 56 has more than 40 patterns and interesting sections on Alpacas and 100 years from the First World War a section on War and Knitting.
The Rowan designers promote two main stories to reflect the major trends for winter WILDERNESS and CRAFTWORK, to contrast with the two main stories, the ESSENTIALS collection of the magazine will concentrate on the key shapes of the season. The Wilderness story has a strong Scottish influence throughout with plaids, checks and fairisles being the main pattern inspirations. Fairisle and jacquard patterning are patchworked together creating a totally modern look. Yarns are phased together using subtle, blended colours. Craftwork is inspired by an artisan approach to traditional craft in a celebration of pattern, colour and texture, heavily influenced by the Bauhaus and Arts and Crafts movement.
