Announcement   The hand dyed yarns at The Yarn Gallery are dyed in small batches.
Each skein has the colour applied individually by hand, which means every skein is totally unique within its colourway.

All the yarns you will find here have been hand dyed using a variety of different techniques.
The colours are mixed daily by eye which keeps the colour ranges ever changing and allowing us to explore new colours every day.

It’s important to order enough yarn for your project as any colour scheme will not get dyed in exactly the same way again. I usually advise taking out a little “yarn insurance”, that’s buying an extra skein just in case, a skein that I’m happy to exchange for another yarn on its safe return.

About

The Story of how The Yarn Gallery Started

The Yarn Gallery sort of happened by accident. The knitwear, yarns and paraphernalia were beginning to crowd out my home. So I rented an old rundown blacksmith's forge that used to belong to my family and set it up as a workshop. In fact, three generations of uncles had worked there as blacksmiths.

So where they once worked with hot metal, I began to work with hot dyes. It has remained a working, creative place. It is a very beautiful and historic building with beams, tiled floors, brick and flint walls and wooden stable doors. It is a bit like an Aladdin's Cave when you walk in and is filled with glowing colours and textures, and yarns spilling out of shelves and cupboards, and rails hanging with finished garments. It is the perfect place in which to work, full of atmosphere.

After I got started, it wasn't long before curious faces appeared at the windows wanting to know what I was doing. Word soon got around and I had a steady stream of customers arriving to buy my yarns and enjoy being able to look at and touch the raw and finished products.

Times change and the opportunity to move on arose. This time an old village pub. Long neglected and in a very bad state of repair, literally falling down, rain through the roof and crumbling wall. But my partner and I just fell in love with this neglected building, we knew it was going to be a long haul of working and earning enough to gradually repair and restore the old building to its glory.
