colorimetry's Shop Announcement

Welcome to Colorimetry!

Colorimetry is an Etsy store that sells the handmade creations of two mad scientists, Purplejen, who has been knitting, dyeing and spinning forever and Banana Split, a multi-tasking fibre artist. We are based in Scotland. We love playing with colour and natural fibres, and hope to play a small part in your fibre adventure. Our product range encompasses: roving, hand dyed and hand combed top from local sheep, hand spun wool, hand painted yarn and pencil roving. We also have non-wool yarns available. Our hand painting process uses a number of novel methods to allow short or long colour repeats (for example 3 colour repeats per 150yd skein), or yarn with no repeats but a gradual colour change. Our Shetland wool is ideal for mock Fair Isle patterns.

Currently all hand dyed yarn and roving have been dyed by Purplejen, and items are packaged and posted by Banana Split.

The products for sale will change seasonally and most are one of a kind. Every batch of yarn/roving hand painted or hand dyed and sold by Colorimetry is totally unique. Yarns are available for hand knitting and machine knitting in a range of fibre contents and weights. We hope to introduce a standard yarn range in 100% wool DK and Aran; however our current yarns should be considered as non-repeatable.

Please contact us with any questions. Should you have a query or comment about an order please get in touch immediately as we will do our best to ensure you are a HAPPY CUSTOMER.
