Colour Description

'Oneroa' 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

Soft, strong and lustrous with a superior drape, Bluefaced Leicester yarn is perfect for most projects. This 5ply BFL is particularly amazing knitted up into mittens or socks.

225m per 100g

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.
