Since 2007, Biscotte Yarns has specialized in hand-dyed yarns, specially self-striping yarns (also known as Autorayante™) which produce a stripe effect in an automatic and completely unique way! For the last decade, we have developed and marketed over than 100 original Autorayante™ self-striping yarns.

In addition to Biscotte Yarns, you will find here an exclusive hand-dyed yarn collection. This artisanal yarn is no ordinary knitting yarn: the designer behind the knitting patterns Louise Robert Design meticulously created this beautiful collection.
It's by studying the color pallets that represent her life and career over the years that designer Louise Robert was able to imagine all of the variety available in these hand-dyed artisanal yarns.
In this gorgeous hand-dyed artisanal yarns, you will find in a beautiful palette of colors in various yarn weight and fibers. Over 40 colourways have been hand-dyed with care and precision to be part of this new collection and among them, some colors are naturally dyed with plants and herbs.

The majority of our products are available in stock and will be processed within 2 open days. If the skeins need to be wound, please allow for an additional delay. However, it is possible that an item you ordered is out of stock at the time you placed your order. In this case, an additional delay of up to 30 days can be applied even if you chose the ‘’express delivery’’ option which applies only to the delivery lead time after the order has been shipped out of our distribution center.

If you don't want to wait, please order your items separately.

Most of your yarns are shipped in Tyvek envelopes which are lightweight and water-resistant. Do not use sharp objects such as scissors to open the envelope: you may cut the yarn inside by mistake.

If you need your order to be processed in priority, please indicate this information in the notes of your order and we will contact you to advise of any delay if needed.
Additional policies and FAQs

Because of its artisanal nature, each skein of hand-dyed yarn may not be completely identical to each other, even if they come from the same dye lot.

To ensure a nice color transition when starting a new skein, especially with semi-solid, speckled and variegated colors, we suggest you alternate the rows of the ending skein with the new one.

The effect of self-striping colorways will be maximized in small circumference knitwear such as socks, mittens, hats and scarves.

About Speckled and Variegated hand-dyed yarns: because of the random nature of these colorways, identical socks and/or homogeneous color in other projects such as shawls or cardigans will not be possible even when using 2 skeins of the same dye lot. They will make coordinating socks, not an identical pair. It is best to switch rows between the skeins when carrying out your shawls, cardigans & other projects.

Most of the time, we take pictures of the yarn in daylight to show the colors closest to reality.

However, because of the difference between the pixels of monitors and their adjustments, it is possible that you observe a slight difference between the actual color and the picture displayed.

Superwash (also identified as SW) processing means that the wool has been chemically treated to prevent felting so you can wash your garments in the washing machine. However, to preserve your garment and color as long as possible, we recommend washing in cold water and drying flat.

Although the yarn is pre-washed, it is possible to observe a slight bleeding of dye during the first washes (bleeding refer to the excess dye that goes away). In some cases, this bleeding flowing into the washing water may affect the adjacent colors (especially on white). For this reason, we recommend washing your garment for the first time by hand in cold water (and always in cold water for subsequent washings).

As all yarns are subject to bleeding on first washes and especially when your project is worked with contrasting colors, we also recommend to wash the darker color skein prior to knitting your project. This will remove the excess color.

At the very least, you may knit a little swatch with all your colors, let it soak in cool/warm water with a mild detergent and see if there is any bleeding. It is better to be safe than sorry.

If you are using self-striping hand dyed yarns including a mix of light and dark colors, it is important to know that darker colors may bleed on lighter sections on first washes. This is a normal effect. It will not disappear but will fade out after few washes.
