Yarn Bases

All of our yarn is handdyed in our small studio by the sea in East Devon. We use single pigment, professional dyes which we blend ourselves to give vibrant, rich colours. The dyes are non toxic,  and we use a variety of techniques to dye the yarn depending on the final result we want to achieve. We source our yarns from a number of different places, and only chose soft, wearable yarn that you will love working with and will want to wear everyday. Where possible, we choose British spun yarns.  We do our best to ensure that the photographs are a true reflect of the colours of the yarn and only use natural light in the photographs but all monitors can vary.
