Bringing together independent yarn dyers, wool farmers, small holders, 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 4 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.

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.

If you haven’t joined us in previous years then here is a taste of what you have missed out on last time!
