Bringing together independent yarn dyers, producers of single origin wool, inspirational tutors and lecturers, and all fibre crafters for an award nominated yarn festival in Scotland.


Welcome to Perth Festival of Yarn

Established in 2016, Perth Festival of Yarn is Scotland’s contemporary yarn and fibre festival.

Over the last 7 years we have welcomed the very best independent businesses from across the UK and EU to our Vendors’ Gallery Marketplace which showcased 84 vendors in 2019.  We’re also thrilled to annually welcome you, our festival-goers, who journey from 20 different countries to celebrate with us in our marketplace, our classes, lectures and social events.  You make us who we are.

Vendor applications for our 2022 celebration closed mid-February and our Reveal Day on 25 June is now fast approaching.  We are delighted to share that we will be back in our home, the Dewars Centre, with our legendary wide aisles, and returning to full day and weekend tickets (subject to no changes from the Scottish Government etc.)  Our social events are also returning – with the most amazing twists.  We do not plan on a formal class programme for 2022 but we are instead extending our range of inspirational talks.

We are still unable to secure any Covid related cancellation insurance so we have to take a calculated risk as to when we can safely release tickets – especially as PayPal no longer returns fees on refunded tickets.  With this in mind we are tentatively proposing 7pm BST on 2 July for our Ticket Release for 10 and 11 September.

We at Perth Festival of Yarn are passionate about the City which we call home.  Perth is Scotland’s ancient capital, the crowning place of our Kings, the Gateway to the Highlands, and 85% of the Scottish population are only a 90 minutes drive away; so we are closer than you may have thought!  If you are planning on jetting in from further afield then connecting train journeys from Glasgow Queen Street (arriving from Glasgow International Airport) and Edinburgh Gateway stations (arriving at Edinburgh International Airport) are only an hour to Perth.
