Yarndale is a festival of creativity celebrating traditional and contemporary crafts using wool, cotton, linen and silk in an area which is still the home of many yarn based businesses: Skipton whose name is derived from the Old English word sceap meaning sheep. Known as the gateway to the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, Skipton is famed for its 900 year old medieval castle, home to the feisty Lady Ann Clifford, and historic cobbled high street. Sheep are vital to this hill farming region and have a massive impact on the life and landscape of this area of outstanding natural beauty. Yarndale is an exciting new event for established and new creative talents and is held in the Auction Mart. With over 100 exhibitors this is a definitely-not-to-be-missed event.
