Botanical yarn - You’ve got a friend in me
All yarn in this section is dyed to order and dispatched within 2 weeks.
Please note: All of botanical yarn is dyed to order, to minimise excess stock and waste.
Botanically inspired, hand dyed wool colourway: you’ve got a friend in me.
Hand-dyed in Yorkshire, England.
I used to run a house plant business, therefore all my hand dyed yarn is inspired by my favourite plants, hence their unusual names.
Please note that as this is a hand-dyed yarn, each skein is unique. We recommend striping alternate skeins when using more than one in order to achieve a more natural gradation.
Care: Wash by hand using a wool wash and lay flat to dry.
Please note, these skeins are dyed to order, so there may be a delay of
2 weeks before your order dispatches. Please let me know if you would like a sweater quantity of any of these skeins, and I can offer 15% over 3 skeins of the same colour. To redeem this discount please use code : SQ
