  • £22.00

Only 2 left!

The Explorer Collection is a new collection of yarns releaased bi-monthly.  For this collection, focus is placed on using a lesser used yarn base, and dyeing them in colours inspired by the landscape of their origin.


February 2021 - "The Yorkshire Dales", Wensleydale 4ply and DK

Wensleydale yarn is a beautiful, wooly yarn which is great for use in colourwork projects.  It has a gentle sheen and soft halo, giving it a beautiful soft look when knitted up with added warmth.

The yarn is of a gentle 2 ply construction but has a lovely soft stitch definition. It would be perfect for use in garments, hats, gloves and scarves.

The colours for this collection are inspiured by the Yorkshire Dales - the golds, greens, browns and heathers of the landscape.

The main skein encapsulates the moors; rich earthy browns with a hint of dark cherry, hints of rich blue and purple.


There are TWO options available this month:

  • 5x20g Mini Set
  • 5x20g Mini Set PLUS 100g main skein

on both 4ply and DK bases.


This is a limited edition yarn and will not be restocked.


Images show the five mini colours as five full 100g skeins.


All sets are sent in an eco-friendly presentation box.

Dyed using professional dyes and processes and painted by hand. As a result, no two skeins are identical although they are dyed in batches.

Every attempt has been made to remove all excess dye from the yarn, however a little may remain - particularly with dark or vivid colours. Therefore, I always advise that you handwash your items alone. Reshape whilst damp and dry flat.

Colours may vary between viewing monitors. Please do not place 100% reliance on the image that you see as being a full reflection of the yarn. Please convo me if you would like more information.

Standard shipping does NOT include tracking or insurance. Therefore, if your parcel is lost you cannot be compensated accordingly. If you would like to add tracking and insurance to your postage, then please choose this option at checkout.
