About Devon Sun Yarns

Devon Sun Yarns is an independent yarn company, specialising in hand dyed luxury yarns, dyed in unique and striking colourways. We always have something for you latest knitting or crochet project.

Located on the Devon/Dorset border, inspiration for colour ways comes from the amazing coastal location, and the constantly changing colours in the local landscapes – from stormy seas to moorland heathers. With small dye lots, each colour way produced is truly one of a kind, with subtle variations from skein to skein. Yarn bases are luxury blends, sourced for their softness and warmth – making these skeins a truly luxury, artisan product. Each skein is personally prepared and hand dyed using a variety of techniques, from hand painting to immersion dyeing, depending on the colours and effects that are required. Once dyed the yarn is steamed and rinsed.

The whole process from start to finish is carried out by hand, and where equipment is required, only electrical equipment which can be powered through solar power is used – luckily it’s a very sunny spot, the home of Devon Sun Yarns! The Yarn is dried outside, benefiting from a sea breeze to dry each skein ready to be prepared for sale. Every skein is given individual attention, and it is this that makes these yarns so distinctive.

We offer subscription year boxes giving you a new knitting or crochet challenge every month. For extra indulgence and to learn a new skill come and visit Devon Sun Yarns on a luxury retreat where you can hand dye your own yarn and relax with your knitting in beautiful Lyme Regis.
