Little Red's Yarn

Little Red's Yarn was created when a hobby turned to an obsession.

When I fell pregnant with my little girl I wanted to knit ALL.THE.THINGS. But I often felt uninspired by the yarn selection available locally, and in online stores. That was until I came across pictures of hand dyed yarn on Pinterest.

After discovering the world of hand dyed yarn and totally diving in to pages and pages of 'yarn porn', I knew I wanted to have a go at creating my own colourways so I could have exactly what I wanted to knit with.

I fell madly in love with creating hand dyed yarn! And it wasn't long before I accumulated quite a large stash.

So, I decided to join the many wonderful, talented and successful indie dyers on Etsy and make my product available to customers world wide.

Little Red's Yarn products are all produced in my home tucked away by the beach.

Every batch is small and carefully tended from start to finish by me.

Some of my colour ways are one of a kind and some have become my most popular, best sellers. Be sure to check out my whole selection.

Additional policies and FAQs
All of my products are hand dyed, with professional acid dyes.

The colour ways I create are unique, and even in cases where I sell 'repeatable' colour ways, there will be variances in the dye lots. Please make sure you purchase the quantity of yarn you need first time, so as to avoid disappointment from mixed dye lots.

I do my best to show the yarn colors as accurately as possible in my photos but not all colours show exactly as they are in person. If I believe a colour way is NOT showing accurately, I will add notes to this affect in the listing.

At this stage I do not offer custom colour ways.
