‘Purple Rain' is an intensely rich, royal purple. Very slight and subtle changes in tone run through the skein.
Our ‘Overtly Organic’ yarn is an organic wool from South American Merino sheep. It is fantastically soft and comfortable with a natural shine. Perfect for making shawls, scarves, hats and mittens to cuddle up and keep warm in. Of course, it’s also great for larger garments and all kinds of accessories for the home. It is also great for felting – why not knit some felted slippers?
As knitters, we know what we want from a hand-dyed skein of yarn. Every skein is carefully rinsed to remove excess dye. Tangles are off the list! So all our yarn is re-wound to ensure there are no tangles in your lovely new skeins. We also clearly mark the ends of the yarn so you won’t have to hunt for them.
Here at Hummingbird Yarns we hand-dye using professional-grade acid dyes in our smoke free home studio. We usually dye very small batches of unique, one-off colourways, so please make sure that you buy enough yarn to complete your intended project.

This is NOT Superwash treated. We recommend that you treat your new yarn kindly by hand-washing in cool water in order to keep the colours looking their best. Please wash separately until you are happy that your garment is completely colourfast.
We do our utmost to take photographs which represent colours as closely as possible to the actual yarn colour in our listings, but please take into account that different monitors may show colours differently.
We love seeing what you’ve created with your yarn from Hummingbird yarns. Please find us on Facebook and share a photo with us or #hummingbirdyarns on Instagram.
