A set of yarn for Colour Lovers .5 mini skeins of yarn, each handdyed in shades of sunshine yellow through to orange and into red. Ready to add some sunshine to your stash or your next project, these 5 colours compliment each other well. Perfect for colourwork, stripes, adding tiny pops of colour to other projects, or just creating beautiful projects, this yarn will give you lots of inspiration.
Yarn will always be Sprightly – a hardwearing but incredibly soft merino/nylon blend. It is strong enough for socks but soft enough for shawls and garments. This blend gives great stitch definition, so all your hard work will really shine through. It can be machine washed at 30* and dyes beautiful bright colours so it’s the perfect choice for yarn lovers who love colour.
Machine washable, although we always advise hand washing.

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.
