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 on the shore.

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 December when this summers fleece returns from the mill.

All our yarn products are limited and once sold out we have to wait patiently for the seasons to turn. We will be shearing during June and the raw fleece will then be sent to the mill asap. All being well we will have new stock by October.

Our Sgeir - Reef blue 4 Ply yarn evokes the irridescent turquoise of the Hebridean sea over sandy reefs. A subtle blue, very wearable on its own or choose to combined it with one of our natural yarns and Corn Marigold or Moss.
