    Independent Yarn Shop UK

    We are an independent UK yarn shop and offer indie hand dyed yarns, an alternative to mass-produced yarns. Our yarns provide high-quality natural fibres with stunning colour combinations and exceptional character. We support Indie Dyer Magazine supplements, such as in The Knitter Magazine, and have done so for many years.

    Indie Dyers

    We are an Indie dyers who hand dye yarn in unique and limited-edition colourways. We make our indie dyed yarn in small batches, or even micro batches, in Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK, and all yarn is dyed using only natural dyes. There really are no exceptions this, only natural dyes are used.

    The colours from indie dyed yarn are enthralling. Indie dyed yarns may be repeated but they can never be exactly the same! The natural dyeing process will depend on where the dyestuff was grown, how and when it was harvested, the fibres being dyed, and the method of application we use. Browse through our hand dyed yarn selection and know that your knitting project will always be one of a kind, part of the beauty of a handmade product!

    • Unique Colours: We create colourways that you won't find anywhere else. From vibrant brights to subtle tonals, there's a yarn to suit every project. With the right experience and processes, hand dyeing yarn with natural dyes can produce vibtrant colours in the yarn.
    • Small Batches, Limited Edition, No Mass Production: The hand-dyeing process creates variations in colour within each skein, making your project truly one-of-a-kind. All our hand dyed yarns are made in small batches with personal care and attention - there is certainly no mass-production here!
    • Sustainability and Provenance: We ethically source all our natural dyes and we do use some recycled rainwater in the washing process. Wherever posible, we source our wool from farmers with sustainable working practices and with full tracability back to farms and farmers - this is not the case in all our yarn, but where it is, it is noted on each product page.
