Colour Description

French Quarter gets its name from that same dusty, vibrant and delicious slice of New Orleans, one of my favourite parts of the world. Immerse yourself in warm bourbon, turquoise, grape, stone and coffee tones.

Small batch hand-dyed.

Yarn Description

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.

212m per 100g

$40 for a 100g skein or $195 for a Sweater Set of 5 x 100g skeins of the same colour (pre-order only). 

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.
