SKD Yarns ( originally Scandinavian Knitting Design Ltd) specialises in Designs, Patterns, Knitting Yarn and Accessories from Northern Europe, Scandinavia selling Knitting Wool and Yarn worldwide online.  

 We are a small family run business specialising in Sandnes and Kauni Yarns, from Norway, Estonia, Scandinavia.

SKD has been appointed as the Official Patterns translator by SANDNESGARN A/S,  we also represent KAUNI  an ESTONIAN manufacturer of wool yarn,  and we are heavily engaged in creating our own Patterns Database specifically for these unique wool yarns.

Sandnes is the largest manufacturer of wool in Norway, offering the knitter a large selection of high quantity knitting yarns in wool, merino, alpaca and cotton, that are pleasing to knit with and give superb stitch definition and wear well. We have a large selection of Sandnes patterns translated into English that can be bought to knit with these beautiful yarns.

Kauni 100% wool yarns from Estonia, offer the knitter in the Effect yarn, long colour runs which result in some stunning looking knits, as well as a large selection of plain colours to compliment them.

Both these companies offer a quality knitting wool at a price that our customers believe to be excellent value for money, and we are now establishing a growing loyal following of repeat customers, from not only the UK but from as far away as USA, Australia, Japan and South Keorea.
