    Hand Dyed Yarn - Natural Yarn Dyes

    Love Wool Love Yarn

    We love wool, we love yarn and we specialise in making hand dyed yarn. This yarn is dyed in small batches from Welsh and UK yarn together with some specialty fibres. All yarn is hand dyed with natural dyes in Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK - we do not 'buy in' any dyed yarn for resale.

    Using natural dyes is matter of personal preference and not a 'right or wrong' or 'good or bad' issue. Our choice is to dye all our yarn and other fibres only with natural dyes. Our hand dyed yarn is an eco-friendly product that sits well with our Mission of NATURAL TRADITIONAL  HANDMADE. 

    • Hand dyeing our yarn is a process where the dye is applied to yarn by hand in small batches.
    • All dyes used in dyeing our yarn are natural dyes - there are no exceptions to this!
    • Hand dyeing is a slower more labour-intensive process compared to machine dyeing. This does allow a much higher degree of customisation and individual preference.

    Hand Dyed Yarn - Natural Dyeing Process

    The colours from naturally dyed yarn are enthralling. Hand 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 thoughtfully hand dyed yarn selection and know that your project will always be one of a kind, part of the beauty of a product.

    Hand-dyed yarns are known for both their unique colour variations and rich depth of colour, which can add a beautiful and one-of-a-kind touch to any knitting or crocheting project.
