Expertly hand dyed yarns and fibres
for your best handmade crafting

Eleanor Shadow uses the best fibres and professional grade dyes to give you the finest yarn and spinning wools you deserve. Life is too short to use nothing but the loveliest crafting materials, am I right?

We source our fleeces locally, process our wools in small batches using the gentlest methods and dispose of dyes responsibly.

Our yarns come from UK-based, mulesing-free suppliers. Our stitch markers are enamel instead of plastic. Whenever possible, our packaging is 100% plastic-free and compostable.

Follow Eleanor Shadow for more indie dyed yarn and knitting shenanigans (also, cats).

"Eleanor is an absolute delight to work with. Great communication throughout and beautiful wool packaged with 'little extras'. I know she had to put in a lot of work for this particular wool - much appreciated. I'll be back!"
