Hand Dyed Yarn Inspiration:

Boating on Loch Ness- this is something I have enjoyed since my very first visit to the Scottish Highlands. Its rugged purple Heather-Clad mountains that reach up from deep lochs are breathtakingly beautiful. You can't help but fall in love with the landscape and the people. As a family, we have taken a few boating holidays on the Caledonian Canal which connects Scotlands East Coast in Inverness to West Coast at Corpach near Fort William. You can read about one of our holidays on my blog here:

On this particular holiday, we stopped at a hotel on the banks of Loch Ness for coffee and cake. There was a lovely little gift shop that stocked jewellery made from pressed heather and some lovely knitwear. Inspired by the heather, I dyed up these lovely speckled shades of purple skeins. I think it would make a beautiful shawl or perhaps some fingerless mitts.

100g -425m

My yarn bases come from a local supplier that prides itself in sourcing its fibre from reliable suppliers with best practices with regard to animal husbandry and the environment, something that is very important to me.

I use acid dyes unless otherwise stated.

Disclaimer: I wash all my yarn with wool wash which may aggravate skins that are sensitive to such products

. Darker colours may run, bleed or transfer and although I take every precaution to ensure colour fastness I cannot be held responsible for any damage caused by colour transfer or bleeding in a wash. Please ensure to follow the recommended washing instructions below.

Washing Instructions: Cool Hand Wash recommended. Wash separately *While I have tried to accurately represent the colours on the skeins, all skeins are unique and the colours may vary slightly according to your monitor. The colour intensity may vary slightly as each skein is unique because it is hand-dyed.
