Excellent

Always entertaining and thought provoking. Been listening for a couple of years now and I can’t imagine how much effort this takes to put together- to research and deliver such excellent content with such consistency. Always look forwards to the next episode and am never disappointed. Louise has really challenged my thinking about Wool and its provenance.

Warm, woolly, and wonderful

Louise has the most wonderful voice, and it has an innate warmth and cheer that welcomes you into the world of Knit British. The aim of the podcast is to inform - and involve - the podcast listener about British sheep breeds (rare and otherwise) and their wool characteristics through a wool exploration undertaken by listeners, and feedback provided to Louise.

There is something very reassuring to listening to others' experiences of the hand-squish-grab test and the multiple wash and block accounts. Not (yet) quite up there with the Shipping Forecast, but perhaps a minor woolly version.

The podcast has a Ravelry community associated with it, where extended conversations about natural shades, 'woolly wool', and swatches carry on with good humour and good cheer. We need more podcasts like this. Thought-provoking, intelligent, and never patronising, KnitBritish will change the way you think about provenance, yarn, and the what it is to knit local.

Binging

Great podcast - very much more like a radio programme than a traditional podcast. Louise is very engaging and the content is both highly informative as well as entertaining. Quality of the interviews is great - and I also appreciate the personal input and opinion. However, I have been amazed how much I didn't know about locally produced yarn and the variety of wool available. My eyes have been opened listening to this podcast I cannot recommend highly enough!
