Wishful Yarn was born out of a love for the outdoors -

and a love for wool!

Forget those childhood memories of jumpers that itched; 

Wishful Yarn uses only 100% merino wool.

Merino wool is:


A Natural Fibre

Super Soft

Moisture Wicking

Temperature Regulating

and it:

Stays Less Stinky

Doesn't Itch!


Every Wishful Yarn piece is individually handmade in the Highlands of Scotland by Rachel. There's no big marketing strategy, no warehouse and when you get in touch you'll be speaking directly to the person who has makes the products, sends the products and loves the products!

If you have any special requirements I'd be more than happy to help - looking for a particular size of hat? I can do that. Need a special present for a birthday or Christening? Just let me know what you have in mind. My goal is to share the love of super soft wool without it costing the earth - so when you buy from Wishful Yarn you're buying local handmade products made from quality materials as affordable as I can make them.

Follow me on social media if you want to know the latest products and get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the whole process, and be sure to check out my Etsy page for products currently in stock. In the gallery you can see some of my products/colours which may not currently be in stock but feel free to get in touch if you'd like to purchase something as I can always make it up for you.

I'm trying to do my bit for the environment so when you buy from Wishful Yarn you should know that:

- Wool is a natural and sustainable resource

- All labels are cork leather

- Packaging is either 100% compostable or 100% recyclable

Enjoy browsing the site and I hope you find something you love!
