I hand dye and paint these luxury yarns here in the beautiful Orkney Islands. I use natural and/or professional acid dyes producing unique hanks of yarn perfect for any knitting or crochet project.
Some of my yarns have "orcadian" names or are names after some of the beautiful places here in the Orkney Islands.
I usually keep these yarns in stock and dispatch within 24 hours, but between online and face to face sales sometimes the stock levels are not accurate. To avoid disappointment please allow 2 weeks delivery for some of these yarns. If there is going to be a delay I will contact you to let you know.
There is the option to 'Pre Order' some yarns and this is advisable for a larger project. Please allow 2 weeks for 'Pre orders'.
As each hand dyed skein is unique they can vary from each batch and from skein to skein. It is always advisable to alternate the skeins every two or three rows when working, to create a blended overall effect.
Yarn is thoroughly rinsed after dyeing, but a small amount of colour run may occur during washing. I carefully manage the water I use to prevent excessive waste.
Note: This item is hand made, and will vary with each dye lot. As with all hand dyed yarns, no 2 skeins are alike. If you need more for your project than what is listed, or prefer a different base, please contact me for a custom order.
I do my best to capture the colour of my yarn. Due to the variations from monitors the colour may vary slightly.
