A creative collaboration.
West Yorkshire Spinners are delighted that Dame Zandra teamed up with them to work in a new way, embracing our state-of-the-art dyeing techniques and processes to create this colourful collection. Her signature method has always been to use textiles printed with silk screen from her own designs.
Zandra’s starting point was to create a core palette of solid colours, experimenting with different combinations and a digital painting technique to create six unique, playful designs.
WYS craftspeople brought Zandra’s vision to life using innovative space-dye and spray printing technology, coupled with decades of expertise, to create a six-shade collection available in two of our most loved British yarns: ColourLab DK and Signature 4ply.
Unmistakeably Zandra Rhodes in colour and appearance, these bold and exotic yarns beautifully showcase her fun and distinctive personality.
Full of colour and life.
In developing this yarn collection, Zandra drew on her love of nature which is captured perfectly in these six colourways, and the name she has given to each one.
“My inspiration was the lovely wild flowers and the British countryside that I’ve loved since being a child. The prints are quite magical. I made my choices so that people could add colour to their wardrobe and really feel fabulous.” - Dame Zandra Rhodes
