  • A close up of a naturally dyed skein of Nene 4 Ply A pile of naturally dyed skeins on Nene 4 Ply

    Naturally Dyed – Nene 4 Ply 100g

    GBP £21.50
    Limited Edition Naturally Dyed Yarn
    These very special skeins have been dyed by extracting natural colours from plants that have either been foraged by us or come from a sustainable source. They are true one-of-a-kind shades that cannot be repeated. They have been hand-dyed in a semi-solid / tonal style so there will be some gentle variation in tone that lends a bit of extra interest to your project.
    The colourway name indicates firstly the source of the dye and secondly, a colour description. For example: "Madder Coral" is dyed with madder and has a coral colour.

    Fibre Content: 100% Bluefaced Leicester Wool
    Specification: 4 ply / fingering weight - 400m / 100g
    Fibre: Sourced from UK flocks
    Processing: Spun in Yorkshire, hand dyed by us in Northamptonshire
  • Skeins dyed in variegated greens with hints of copper and red Skeins dyed in variegated greens with hints of copper and red

    Towpath – Nene DK 100g

    GBP £19.90
    Another canal-inspired colourway; the towpath is the path travels alongside the cutting. Originally it was for horses to tow working boats, hence the name, but now it is home to wildlife, walkers, cyclists, and boaters alike. Although quite highly variegated, the colours are light and will allow textured patterns to shine through while lending visual interest to simple ones. The gentle colours blend beautifully in the finished project.

    Recommended needle & hook size: 2.0mm - 3.75mm (always check the pattern)

    Aysgarth is 100% lustrous British Wensleydale wool. Its appearance is similar to the shine and the halo of mohair and it feels like a warm woolly hug. Seriously, you won't be able to stop stroking this yarn! It comes from sheep who have amazing long curly locks and it is a hand dyer's favourite for its colour uptake. The yarn is worsted spun and plied, and has a draping handle, making it ideal for statement pieces. Remember to always block your projects for the best outcome. Please note that this is a non-superwash yarn, so it can be felted if you want.

  • 4 skeins of Severn 4 Ply in chartreuse, mustard, ecru, and light teal A skein of Severn 4 Ply in a natural ecru colour

    Baa Ecru – Severn 4 Ply 50g

    GBP £8.50
    Fibre Content: 100% British Jacob wool
    Specification: 4 Ply / Fingering weight - 175m / 50g
    Fibre: Sourced from Worcestershire, UK
    Processing: Spun in Ceridigion, Wales, dyed in the UK
    Recommended needle & hook size: 2.5mm - 3.75mm (always check the pattern)

    This is a light and airy woollen-spun and plied yarn from a single farm in Worcestershire. Jacob sheep are one of the oldest native breeds in the UK. They are striking in their appearance, with white and brown fleeces and multiple horns! We sorted the fleeces by hand, separating the white from the brown. We have natural and dyed shades available. The wool is hardwearing and makes lightweight, warm garments that soften beautifully with age. Use it for hats, mittens, jumpers, and house socks and slippers. The yarn is made up of 2 plies, which lends itself well to lace patterns and stranded colourwork. This yarn hasn’t been superwash-treated, so it will felt if you want it to. This also makes it an excellent candidate for steeking, if you’re brave enough!

  • Close up of skeins in zesty green with pops of yellow and purple Skeins of Nene 4 Ply in zesty greens with pops of yellow and purple
    We created this colourway partly out of longing for summer after the rather wet and cold spring of 2021, and partly due to the kids bringing that oh-so-annoying phrase out of hibernation since we’ve been coming out of lockdown and travelling further afield! This colourway is moderately variegated and that makes it a lot of fun to work with because almost every stitch is a different colour. Textured patterns will show up in this yarn, alternatively, use it for something simple and let the colours do the work!
