Yarn Bases

West Green Loft Yarns offers a range of colourways on a selection of bases

Please note some base take the dye and colour differently for example BFL is a much creamier base whereas WGLY Wisp will have a higher saturation level - please click here to see all the photos of the different bases in the dye to order section

I  source all my yarn from various UK based companies who work very closely with the local community where the yarn is milled - please click here to find out more about some the social projects that one of my main suppliers support
