Many of my colourways are inspired by our family, our home, days out etc. The Fruit Salad colourway is a soft blend of pinks, yellow, peach, orange and hints of white inspired by the old fashioned fruit salad sweets. These bring back childhood memories for me, how about you?
All of my skeins are dyed by myself here in my home in East Sussex, England using professional dyes.
If you would like more than one as a custom order then I do dye them as a batch.
Each one of these skeins are unique so if you are using more than one per project, be sure to alternate to get a good spread of colour.
I try to capture the colours as accurately as possible but some monitors do vary.

Some yarn colourways are regulars and can be repeated.
• Hand dyed yarns can vary from batch to batch, and sometimes even from skein to skein within the same batch. You can minimize the effects of this (if desired) by alternating skeins every few rows in larger projects.
• When multiple skeins are available in a listing, they are from the same batch. Always purchase enough yarn to complete your project from the same batch (i.e., from the same listing) for maximum uniformity.
• Need more skeins than currently available in a listing? Love a colorway, but want it on a different base yarn? I'd be happy to dye more for you; please send me a convo for details.
All of my skeins are dyed using professional dyes, in a smoke-free, dog and cat free environment
All weights and metres/yardage are approximate and as stated by my supplier. I am willing to wind any yarns into cakes for you, please advise me at checkout.
Although I wash my skeins until the water runs clear, there is a slight possibility that there may be some colour bleed in the first few washes, therefore please wash separately from other items. Also for these reasons, if you are intending to use your hand-dyed skein for colour-work, it is strongly advisable to knit/crochet a tension square and wash it to see if there is any colour bleed, before continuing your project!
Although some yarns are superwash it is recommended to hand-wash all yarns and fibres in lukewarm water with an unscented wool-wash, or non-biological washing powder. Dry flat away from direct heat and sunlight.
I have tried to capture the colours as accurately as possible, however due to the differences between computer screens, the actual colour of the yarns and fibres may vary from what you see on your screen.
The fabrics used in the project bags are all new unless you are buying bags made from vintage or upcycled fabrics, these will be clearly marked as such in the listings.
All of my items are sold subject to UK Laws and Legislation.
