Bought this decadent yarn in these gorgeous shades to knit the Maytham Shawl pattern from Helen Stewart's The Shawl Society Season III. I adore the colorways of this set, and the feel of the yarn is just dreamy. I know when this shawl is finished, it will be a real show stopper. My yarn arrived in good time from Australia. The price was reasonable, and it was well packaged. I'm excited to begin knitting. Woohoo!

Rediscovering colourful fun as a mum of three after a long stint as a molecular geneticist.

Hi and welcome to Circus Tonic Handmade. My name is Hannah and I live in Sydney, Australia with my husband, three kids and Hector the hound. Having taken a break from scientific employment I have begun my business Circus Tonic Handmade. I offer beautifully dyed luxury yarn for knitters and crafters. Taking time, like the children do, to notice the unbelievable natural beauty and diversity that surrounds us here in Sydney, enables endless colour inspiration. My first collection available now is inspired by Australian native birds, many of which we are lucky enough to spot even in our urban space.

Additional policies and FAQs
This is hand dyed yarn and so pooling and flashing may occur. It is always recommended to alternate skeins for garments when using hand dyed yarns.

Skein sizes do vary so please check how much yarn you need for your project. Please attempt to use generous calculations as it cannot be guaranteed that your colour way will be available in the future.

Any knots or splices that I have detected will be mentioned in the listing. I endeavour to not offer items for sale with knots or splices, but the absence of these cannot be guaranteed.

These skeins are hand dyed with as few chemicals as possible. Colours may bleed. Although some yarns are designated as "superwash" it is always advised to hand wash items to ensure longevity of your precious hand knits. Dry flat in shade.

I have a non-shedding dog at home and we are smoke free.
