“Cotton Candy Kitty” is a girly and cute blushy pink semi-solid pink speckled yarn, ever so slightly speckled with a darker pink for more depth.

It is dyed in my Kitten Lace base, a luxurious and fuzzy yarn in kid mohair and silk that is a joy to knit with. Use it solo for a cosy and light-as-a-cloud creation or double it with another yarn for extra warmth.

There is a total of 420 meters or 459 yards in this 50g skein, perfect for an airy but warm shawl.

This yarn is part of the Cattitude Collection and is also available in Gaia Sock (superwash merino/nylon) at the time of writing, as shown in the last photo, which 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 just for you.

If you’d like to get Cotton Candy Kitty in any of my other yarn bases, you can custom order it.

Because designer indie-dyed yarns are created in small batches, differences are to be expected between dye lots (and often even in the same one). I therefore suggest you buy as many skeins as needed for your project and alternate them to avoid pooling and colour mismatches.

Colour accuracy

This yarn shows true to its colours in real life to me, but please bear in mind that if your monitor settings differ from mine, it might show differently 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.

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.
