Colour Description

'Oneroa' (previously named 'Pito-one') is a colourway inspired by walking the long stretch of pebble and shell-flecked sand on the beach near where I live. It consists of beautiful silvery greys, warm ochre, blues and jewel tones. 

10% of the profits from this colourway goes to support the work of Taki Rua Productions, Aotearoa's foremost Māori theatre company. Read more about their work here.

Small batch hand-dyed.

Yarn Description

100% best quality chunky (12ply) Peruvian Baby Alpaca. This is an extremely soft, dense yarn and is absolutely dreamy to work with and wear.

100m per 100g

$45 for a 100g skein or $220 for a Sweater Set of 5 x 100g skeins of the same colour (pre-order only). 

Please note that Sweater Sets are pre-orders only so are not in stock, please allow approximately 4 - 8 weeks for any Sweater Set pre-orders.

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 - that is, the water is clear, so I can reuse the same water for the next batch.
