“Not Sorry” is a semi-solid blue mohair silk yarn, ever so slightly speckled with violet for added depth. The name of this colourway was inspired by my felines in residence (because I can shout until I’m blue in the face but they’re rarely sorry for any mischief they cause…)

Dyed in my Kitten Lace base, a luxurious, and fuzzy yarn that is a joy to knit with, you will have hours of knitting or crochet fun ahead of you.

Use the yarn on its own with the recommended needle/hook sizes or follow your own preference. Knit it on its own or double it with a sock yarn for extra warmth and cosy fuzz.

“Not Sorry” is part of the Cattitude Collection and is also available in Gaia Sock (my superwash merino/nylon fingering weight base), as shown in the last photo and can be purchased in a separate listing.

This is a repeatable colourway. If you’d like a larger quantity of skeins or in a different yarn base, please contact me and I’ll be happy to custom dye it for you.

The magic of small-batch hand dyed yarns

Since designer indie-dyed skeins are created in small batches, some differences can be expected between them (and often even in yarns of the same batch). Because of this, I advise you buy as many as needed for your project and alternate them to avoid pooling and colour mismatches. Find out more in our Fibre Bases and Info page.

A word on colour accuracy

Please note that this yarn is more turquoise than the photo shows, my camera has trouble capturing certain blues sometimes. 

Also, do note that monitor settings influence how you see a colour on your end.

  • Keep yarn in a dry room away from direct sunlight. Airtight boxes are recommended. Don’t place anything heavy on top of the skein to avoid squishing it.
  • I recommend adding lavender sachets to the storage container for pest prevention.
  • Hand wash your finished product separately using wool-specific detergents, dry flat. Hand dyed fibres may bleed a little in the first couple of washes.

Your best crafting is my goal

I want you to absolutely love your knitting and crochet. I care whether that fab cardigan or pair of socks come to life. Your knitting and crochet needs to be everything you ever dreamed of and I want to help you get there. My yarns,  project bags and stitch markers are all created with your best crafting life in mind.

Hello there, I’m Eleanor and my goal in life is to be a part of your lovely hand crafting journey by dyeing the most fun yarns for your enjoyment.
