Yarndale Bags

We’ll have lots of project bags at Yarndale – including some with a limited edition print. The print is a combination of the Yorkshire rose and a ball of yarn.

Project bags come in two sizes.

Large project bags are 34cm tall, 28cm wide at the top, 18cm wide at the base and 10cm deep at the base. They easily will hold 6 100 gram skeins of yarn.

Small project bags are 23 cm tall, 28cm wide at the top, 18cm wide at the base and 10cm deep at the base. They easily will hold 3 100 gram skeins of yarn.

Both bags are printed on Fair Trade organic cotton and printed with water based inks.

Both project bags cost £25 inc VAT / £20.83 ex VAT. The prices for both bags are the same. There’s very little difference in the material costs, and it seemed wrong to inflate the price of the larger bag. We thought it made more sense to let you choose which bag you wanted based on desired capacity.

We’ll also have tote bags and I’m thrilled about these. I’ve been looking for Fair Trade cotton bags for quite a while. There are any number of suppliers who will sell you bags made in China and claim that working conditions are wonderful, yet they can’t back that up. Our bags come from BIDBI (bidbi.co.uk) and their Fair Trade claims are actually backed up. The company is based in Sheffield, so it’s nice to be supporting another Yorkshire based business.

So – the actual bags. I have two cloth bags I use constantly. One is a heavy weight canvas and it’s on my shoulder most days as I head out the door. My second bag is a much lighter cotton bag which spends lots of it’s life crumpled up inside bag one, and is there when I need a second bag. I knew exactly what I wanted.

Our heavy canvas bag is made from 100% heavy 10oz cotton canvas and has long cotton webbing straps. The bag has a deep gusset so there’s lots of space in it. It measures 42cm x 37cm x 11cm / 16.5in x 14.5in x 4.5in. To made the bag even more useful we’ve added a large pocket to the front. the pocket measures 30cm x 27cm. The pocket is made from fairtrade organic cotton and screen printed with water based ink.

These bags will cost £12.50 inc VAT / £10.42 ex VAT after Yarndale (although this design won’t be available. At Yarndale – and if you preorder – these bags will cost £10.00 inc VAT / £8.33 ex VAT.

Our light weight cotton bag is made from 5oz cotton – so it’s easy to fold up, but sturdy enough to last. These bags measure 42cm x 37cm / 16.5in x 14.5in. We’ve printed on one side of this bag – and on the other we’ve added a printed pocked that you can use to store your bag. The pocket is 15cm or 6 in square, so the bundles up bag is wonderfully compact.
