“Not Sorry” is a fun semi solid speckled blue yarn with discreet violet speckles here and there for added depth. If you’re owned by any cats, the name of this yarn should be something you’re very familiar with. This colourway has been dyed in my Gaia sock yarn base, a lovely squishy merino and nylon blend (75/25). There’s 464 yards for you to knit or crochet with.

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

This yarn is part of the Cattitude Collection and is also available in Kitten Lace (mohair/silk lace weight), as shown in the last photo – this can be purchased in a separate listing.

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

A word on indie dyed yarns

Yarns that are created by independent small businesses like mine are created in small batches, which means differences are to be expected between them (and often even in the same batch). Because of this, 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.

Colour Accuracy

This colourway is more turquoise in real life than the photo shows because my camera couldn’t capture the hue perfectly. However, do note that your monitor 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.
