Sea anemones flow gracefully in the ocean bed, like little salty ballerinas. I saw a picture of one and simply had to recreate it in yarn form. This is how this deep blue violet and dusky pink yarn came to existence, to fulfil all your underwater-inspired knitting and crocheting dreams.

This single-ply DK weight yarn base is just so soft. At 225 meters long, it’s the perfect length for creating that warm beanie or neck warmer for yourself or a loved one by the fireplace. Cosy. 

Indie dyed in small batches

Given that my hand dyed yarns are created in small batches, differences may exist between skeins (and often even in the same batch), even more so in yarns with different colour sections.

I advise you buy as many skeins as needed for your project and alternate them to avoid pooling and colour mismatches. Find out more in our Fibre Bases and Info page.

The colours shown in these photographs are true in my monitor, but please bear in mind your settings might differ from mine.

  • 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.

I’ll do all of this without compromising on quality or my eco values: I source my wool from ethical, local suppliers and I hand dye my fibre using the most planet-friendly techniques at my disposal.
