In our online yarn shop, we have a variety of hand dyed yarns, dyed with natural dyes and related products. All our products are available to buy online - buy wool online, click here...
Our hand dyed yarn is produced from the finest British wool with natural dyes in our FelinFach Dye Studio. By using excellent quality natural fibre, including locally sourced Welsh yarn as well as British yarn, and by sourcing botanical natural plant dye extracts, we are able to produce beautiful naturally dyed yarn, cotton and other fabrics. The colours from natural dyes in general and also from natural plant dyes are enthralling. Each will depend on where the dyestuff was grown, how it was harvested, the fibres being dyed, and the method of application we use. It takes time, knowledge and patience but we love what we are able to do at the Dye Studio and hope that this comes through in our yarn. Have a browse through the hand dyed yarns available and know that your project will be one of a kind. There is a choice of yarn weights, Double Knitting, Aran, Lace, Sock and 4 Ply yarns. Hand dyed yarn with natural dyes may be repeated but they can never be exactly the same - part of the beauty of a handmade product!
We always have an amount of undyed skeins of yarn for those who wish to dye their own yarn.
Our unique yarn bowls have their distinctive and much loved leather handles. The bowls are available in ceramic or Welsh Beech to the FelinFach design. All are individually hand made. Once complete, the leather handles are made and finished by hand at the FelinFach studio. We use traditional, vegetable tanned leather sourced within the UK. These yarn bowls are plenty big enough for a 100g skein of wool or skein of yarn, balls of yarn or whatever you wish to call them.
Related to our hand dyed yarn are our craft course on natural dyeing. Our craft course will teach you how to hand dye yarn or develop your skills in our FelinFach Dye Studio. Located in the north Pembrokeshire countryside, our hands-on craft courses are held in a purpose designed Dye Studio. There is a beauty and depth of colour to natural dye that becomes more beautiful with age. Hand dyed colours, dyed with natural dyes may be repeated but they can never be exactly the same - part of the beauty of a handmade product! All the yarn and scarves for sale on this website have been hand dyed with natural dyes by the Tutor of these craft courses - Hand Dyed Yarn - Hand Dyed Scarves.

The workshop has one Tutor and a maximum number of six students. We guarantee to hold each workshop irrespective of the number of students unless there is some unavoidable reason to cancel.
