Watercolours and Lace hand-paint yarn in a variety of lace weights, from cobweb upwards, and a range of 4-ply thicknesses. All are dyed in small batches - often just one 100g skein at a time, using a technique which results in subtle colour variations and gradations, without harsh stripes or pooling. No two skeins are identical, even within a single batch, so whatever you create with our yarns will be one-of-a-kind.
We only use high quality natural fibre yarns, from British flocks and/or spun in the UK when possible, although a number of yarns are sourced by our suppliers from overseas.
Professional acid dyes are used for our main range and we are constantly experimenting with new colour blends, so the palette available changes regularly. We also offer a more limited colour range using natural botanical (plant-based) dyes.
We also produce kits from our own designs, together with a small range of high quality hand-crafted accessories including project bags, needle rolls and stitch markers.
Everything we sell (with the exception of shawl pins) is produced by hand in our own studio in Norfolk, England - we do not buy in finished items, nor do we employ outworkers.
Colours are reproduced as closely as possible but may look a little different on your monitor. If you are not happy with the colour we will be happy to replace it or refund the cost of the yarn.
