Hand Dyeing Heaven since 2005!

New yarns in stock now!

YA209 72% kid mohair 28% silk laceweight undyed yarn

Scrumptious new undyed yarns

We know how much you love luxury so we’ve been out and about testing new yarns to share with you.

6 delicious new yarns have just gone live on the website and we hope you’ll love them as much as we do!

We have 3 luscious laceweights, a lovely 4ply/sock weight, and two delicious new DKs.

YA209 72% mohair 28% silk laceweight (50g)

Silky soft and light with an amazing halo, we haven’t had a mohair/silk for a while so it’s nice to see one back in our collection.

YA207 50% silk 50% merino laceweight 100g

The shine on this luxurious yarn is amazing! The merino content gives it a little bounce so has the sheen of silk without being too heavy. Perfect!

YA208 Light grey alpaca/silk/cashmere laceweight

Our naturally-coloured yarns are always popular so we love to add them to our collection. The effect of the natural colour on the dyeing is gorgeous.

YA211 75% merino 20% nylon 5% silver stellina DK 100g

Fans of our stellina sock yarns will be pleased to know that, by popular request, we’re now stocking the DK version of this fab superwash yarn.

YA143 100% merino wool tweed 4ply 100g

Why tweed I hear you ask? The magic reveals itself when this yarn is dyed. Without giving too much away it has two ends of non-superwash yarn and one of superwash. The magic happens when the dye is applied as the colour takes quite differently on the two types. Trust me, it’s awesome!

YA210 100% superwash merino chainette DK 100g

Springy, bouncy, lofty and light are the words that come to mind with this new yarn. I’m testing some designs with this new yarn and I’m having so much fun.
