‘Black Star' is the deepest and darkest of purple, grey and blue shades which take us as close to a midnight sky as humanly possible (on yarn!).
Small batch hand-dyed.
This luxury, plush yarn is a blend of 50% fine Merino and 50% pure Mulberry Silk. Colours really 'pop' on this base and naturally it is unbelievably soft and smooth.

4ply / Fingering / Sock 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.
