----------------------

Specializing in bold bursts of colour, self-striping, and speckles.

Looking for something specific? I love doing custom work! Message me for prices and details.

Production time for dyed-to-order yarns is 1-2 weeks.

All items are made in a smoke-free studio. There is a resident pup, but she is both hypoallergenic and uninterested in the stash. The odds of your yarn coming with dog dander are low but please be aware.

Everything I order from Sinister Yarns I love. These aren't my colours but in person they are just amazing and I can't wait to do something with this skein.

About

Sinister Yarns takes its name from the archaic definition of sinister, meaning "to the left." As a left-handed knitter, I've always had to do things a little bit differently, and it's shaped the way I approach all things yarn. Dyeing is a labour of love for me, and a way to bring a little more colour into the world. I hope you love what I've made for you.
