Limited Edition Project Bag – by Aleks Byrd


To celebrate our Mill Open Weekend shenanigans, the fabulous, Aleks Byrd has illustrated a glorious, limited edition design, inspired by our Mill Open Weekend special yarns… We loved it so much, that we just had to use it on our tote bags this year.

The bag is the perfect size to carry your latest project, but stick it over our shoulders and you’ll be set for your wander over the moors or take a picnic on the beach. Aleks’ illustration, created especially for our 2024 Mill Open Weekend, perfectly captures the joy and fun of our event! Aleks has used the same colour palette as our special edition yarns, each shade designed by Aleks herself, Emily of Tin Can Knits and Ysolda Teague-Long. We all love a good dance with our yarn, and since our specials are created on our Yarnadelic base, it fits the theme perfectly!

Printed in the UK on 100% Cotton, in a Fair Trade certified factory.
