Shetland explorer collection


Dyed With: Weld, onion skins, logwood & avocado


Our explorer collection celebrates rare breed british sheep yarns. Each explorer pack comes as 5x20g mini skeins dyed in a range of natural colours. 


Shetland is the smallest of the British breeds found mainly on the Shetland Islands. The wool is fine, soft and silky to the touch with good, bulky characteristics.


We believe that natures colours can be fun and exciting for everyone. Our yarns are lovingly dyed by hand in small batches with botanical extracts straight from nature.


Our yarns are hand dyed with natural dyes sustainably foraged from our local area, grown in the garden or even waste food like onion skins. No toxic chemicals are used during the dying process.
