All the yarns are hand dyed by me, in my small home studio in Devon. I use professional dyes that are non toxic, and colourfast. The yarn is painted or kettle dyed by hand, then steam set until the dye has fully exhaust, washed and carefully rinsed before being hung outside to dry in the sea breeze ( when the weather allows – for really rainy days we have an indoor drying area too!). We take steps to reduce our environmental impact, and you’ll find an eclectic mix of new, repurposed and upcycled equipment in the studio, which is partially solar powered. I take all photos using natural daylight, and although I do my best to show them in their true colour, monitors can vary.
You can get ideas of what to use this yarn for by following me on Pinterest. I also post behind the scenes pictures and new stock on my Instagram page, and you can often find me chatting about yarn and what I am making over on my blog.
