We started adding knitting kits to our website at the start of December 2018. Watch this space for more designs!
Each Bantry Yarn knitting kit features a timeless take on a classic Irish design. We’ve drawn inspiration from the place we call home in each piece, so you can knit a little bit of West Cork, wherever you are.
We’ve divided them into kits for beginners and more experienced knitters. Each knitting kit includes all of the wool you’ll need for your knitting project, as well as a clearly written knitting pattern for you to use. Our instructions will guide you as you work towards creating your own unique piece of knitwear.
The colourways we’ve chosen reflect the shades and character of the wild Atlantic land and seascapes that surround us here in Bantry, Co. Cork. And each kit is named for the place that inspired it. They make wonderful Christmas presents for anyone with a love for Ireland’s west coast.
We’re delivering to Ireland at the moment. In 2018, we’ll be happy to send our kits out beyond Ireland, so that everyone can enjoy owning a beautiful Irish knitted design. And, of course, we hope your knitting inspires you to visit us here in West Cork.
We offer specialist knitting workshops that will introduce to the intricacies and traditions of Irish knitting.
