Hand Dyed & Hand Dyed Effect Yarns

Hand Dyed Yarns & Wools are most often associated with the Independent Yarn Industry ("Indie Dyers") and are sought after for their alternative style offering bold colours, interesting shade manipulation, exciting colour effects...and of course their wow factor and feeling of complete uniqueness!

Thanks to the success of this niche, we are now finding that some well-known companies and larger names in the Fibre Industry are working with Artisans and Co-operatives to produce Hand Dyed Yarns. Manos del Uruguay are a great example of this - a non-profit organisation established in the late 1960's. Each skein is spun and then dyed up to six times to achieve the complexity of a true piece of art. Every hank comes with a tag with the name of the artisan who made it and the co-ops location. Every skein is unique, there are no two skeins exactly the same!

This trend for more "out there" colour effects in yarn has also seen the likes of Noro, Sublime and West Yorkshire Spinners create new ranges with a "Hand Dyed Look" but with the convenience of dye-lots and being able to match colours more easily for larger projects.

In this section you'll find a happy mixture of both Hand Dyed and Hand Dyed Effect yarns to suit all of your knitting needs.
