French Quarter gets its name from that same dusty, vibrant and delicious slice of New Orleans. Immerse yourself in warm bourbon, turquoise, grape, stone and coffee tones.
Small batch hand-dyed.
Dreamy 2ply yarn comprised of 74% Baby Suri Alpaca and 26% Mulberry Silk. This yarn is buttery soft and sumptuous and perfect for people with skin sensitivity to Mohair. Use on its own for lace-weight projects such as shawls or hold two strands together or one strand of Suri Silk Lace and another of a different base such as 4ply Silk/Merino to add a touch of elegant fluff.
300m per 50g (or 600m per 100g)
Non-superwash, 2ply / Heavy Lace Weight yarn.
Small batch, hand-dyed yarn from my little studio in Lower Hutt, Aotearoa/New Zealand. Everything, from sourcing the yarn to shipping, is done with love and care by hand. The nature of hand-dyed yarn is that no two skeins are exactly the same, creating beautifully nuanced colourways.
I source finest quality, fully traceable and mulesing-free, ethically, sustainably farmed yarns from New Zealand and abroad.
The dyes I use are made in Australia and New Zealand. They are acid dyes that are used for dyeing protein-based fibre (such as wool and silk). I take every care to use only the quantities necessary to create my colourways. This means that the dyepot is fully exhausted when the dyeing is complete.
