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 perth, Scotland.


Welcome to the scottish yarn festival

Established in 2016, The Scottish Yarn Festival has previously been known as Perth Festival of Yarn. 

We are Scotland’s largest and longest continuously running contemporary yarn and fibre festival.

Over the last 8 years we have welcomed the very best independent businesses from across the UK and EU to our thoughtfully curated Vendors’ Gallery Marketplace.  Our illustrious tutors and lecturers have included Amy Palko, Di Gilpin, and Jeanette Sloan BEM.   Each year we put together a fringe programme of social events which have included books signings, gala dinners and fashions shows, and Perthshire gin flights.  The level of detail, innovation and passion we craft into each offering is why we are not only an award nominated destination festival, but also the reasons why you join us from – on average – 20 different countries every year.

The Scottish Yarn Festival is moving to Errol Showground, Perthshire, on 7 September 2024.  Our programme will be revealed on 29 June, and tickets will be released at 7pm BST on 6 July.

Vendor applications for our 2024 celebration are now closed.  Contact us at with your business name to be considered for our cancellation list.



Our Scottish Wool Producers Showcase event will return to a new location in spring 2025.

Founded in 2022 the Scottish Wool Producers Showcase seeks to shine a spotlight on yarns with a distinctly Scottish origin and their makers.  Featuring a boutique marketplace celebrating Scotland’s single farm yarns, shepherds, mills, and more, as well as inspiring presentations.
