 Dìthean-òir - Corn marigold

4 Ply Hebridean Colours

The hues of our 4 Ply colour range reflect the subtle tones and shades of the Outer Hebrides.

Our ecosystems here are as much Highland as Island given that our habitats range from moor to machair, shore and sea. In relatively short distances, you can encounter gliding golden eagles, wild orchids and roaring Atlantic breakers.

Living in this wild and special place, we are constantly reminded of how important it is to care for our environment. Therefore, for our Hebridean colour range we have used organic dyes to over dye our Storm Grey 4 Ply.  The resulting colours are beautifully subtle and broken relating to our rustic, wilderness environment.

Why not knit yourself a little bit of the Hebrides …

Our out of stock yarns will be replenished by early January when this summers fleece returns from the mill.

Orders dispatched on Mondays and Fridays.

Dìthean-òir - Corn marigold


Our Dìthean-òir - Corn marigold 4 Ply yarn evokes the bright green of summer growth on the machair. There is an edge to this hue that works well with Storm Grey and Reef to make it a strong and lively combination.

Please note for my faithful returning customers, CornMarigold2018 is a little darker than last year - colour card to follow once all stocks replenished.
