Colour Description

'Rau Aroha' reflects the deep greens and teals of Aotearoa's unique and beautiful native bush and the abundance of love that surrounds.

Small batch hand-dyed.

This colourway has been photographed in bright natural light outdoors and in a studio setting to try and convey the difference in appearance depending on where and when one looks at it - hence the distinct difference in the photographs.

Yarn Description

Exquisite 2ply yarn comprising of Fine Kid Mohair 72% and Mulberry Silk 28%.  Use this luxurious yarn on its own to create stunning, light-as-air projects or hold a strand together with another yarn, such as an 8ply Merino, to add a touch of fluffy, silky elegance.

420m per 50g

$38 for a 50g skein or $370 for a Sweater Set of 10 x 50g skeins of the same colour (pre-order only). 

2ply / Light Fingering weight yarn.

Please note that Pre-order skeins and Sweater Sets are not in stock, please allow approximately 4 - 8 weeks for any 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.
