About

Twisted Limone

Specialising in self-striping yarn, Twisted Limone offers a bright and fun selection of colours. I enjoy experimenting with colour and I am particularly enthusiastic about dyeing self-striping yarn. I have some eye-catching and unusual colour combinations to excite and tantalise! I am constantly working on new colourways, so please check the shop regularly.

I began dyeing self-striping sock yarn in 2010 when there were very few indie dyers using this method and virtually no dyers (that i was aware of) selling hand-wound balls. I opened my shop in the same year and as a result of being a little bit different, and also a little quirky, things completely snowballed and my yarn was selling within seconds of hitting the shop! This took me completely by surprise and I was thrilled to bits! Things have calmed down a lot these days, and after having returned from a short break from dyeing I've noticed I now have lots of competitors!!!! ;)

To see all my yarn colours please follow the Pinterest link below and scroll down the account to Knitting | My Striped Yarn OR Knitting | My Variegated Yarn. Alternatively scroll through my shop's 'Sold Items'.

For announcements about my yarn updates and what I'm up to it is mega important you follow me on Instagram! :) (link below).

Have a wonderful day!

Additional policies and FAQs
A NOTE ABOUT YARN: I use professional acid dyes, follow the correct dyeing process to the letter and strive to ensure all colours used are colour-fast and stay put! HOWEVER, being hand-dyed yarn this cannot always be guaranteed and a little dye loss may occur during the initial washing process, so don't be alarmed! Certain colours are particularly naughty; such as turquoise, purple, black or really saturated and strong colours.

Although all my base yarn is machine washable, it is for the reasons mentioned above, as well as to maintaining shape and longevity, that I recommend you hand wash all my yarn using a gentle, wool kind detergent and cool water. Look after your yarn and it will look after you :)

Yarn/Garment colours may vary slightly from the photograph. I try to get each photograph as true to life as possible, but please remember each computer monitor can vary the colour slightly.

I am happy to do custom orders, in fact I LOVE custom orders, so please contact me if there is a yarn colour you would like which is not listed. Please note there may be a waiting list, so please contact me and I will let you know how long it is.

All my hand-crafting is done in a smoke free environment. Each item has been hand washed in a delicate soap powder and is rinsed and ready to use/wear on arrival.

Finally…………I put an awful lot of time, effort and thought into my craft and I hope this reflects itself in the finished yarn available at Twisted Limone. I hope you enjoy browsing through my shop and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions no matter how small :)
