Embrace colour!

We started experimenting with dyeing our own yarns last year (2016). Andrew has a very scientific approach and is chief dye-weigher and mixer! He also likes to knit socks and has been working on his own colour combinations and creating self-striping sock yarns. Sharon is chief dye-pot agitator and photographer. She loves working with bright, bold colours and likes to knit socks, shawls, hats as well as the occasional garment.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

We recommend gentle hand washing for all of our yarns.

When I washed my item some colour came out - is this normal?

We take great care to use the correct amount of dye when dyeing our yarns and fibre and all our items are thoroughly rinsed after dyeing.

You may experience a slight colouration of water when rinsing - the water should run clear quite quickly. Some colours, particularly blues, are more prone to 'bleeding'. Please note that the often given advice to rinse with vinegar solution is no better than using plain water. The dyes which we use will only 'fix' when heat (above 85C) is applied.

If you have any issues with your yarn, please contact us and we will work with you to resolve them.
