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!
Accepted payment methods
I will ship the order as soon as I possibly can, but please allow 3-5 days for orders in the UK and up to 14 days for international orders.
I ship by First Class post within the UK and Royal Mail Airmail for international orders. I always get proof of postage. Customers are liable for any taxes/duty applied at Customs.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want my customers to be completely satisfied and happy, so if by any chance you are unhappy with your purchase then please contact me straight away so that I can rectify the problem as quickly and smoothly as possible.
I will only refund or exchange if you return your item in its original state, unused within 10 days. I will refund the full amount, including postage, but I am afraid you will have to pay the postage to return the item to me.
Additional policies and FAQs
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 :)
