Lace Weight Yarn

Just listed here at Tinctoria we have a skein of lace Weight yarn dyed with Lac, RASPBERRY LACE. This super soft, fine wool has the most subtle of colour variations throughout, offering an opportunity for a unique piece of knitting or crochet. Cool dark pink/red, this dye result is truly lovely.




We are so pleased here at Tinctoria to offer some sparkles at last! We will most definitely be maintaining a good variety of these from now on.

Our first skein to be listed, INDIGO SPARKLES is a beautifully hand dyed skein of merino in Lace Weight Wool. This Indigo blue skein is shot through with silver sparkles and would make the most gorgeous shawl, wrap or stole. Like a starry night, this is really lovely and super soft to touch.


Our second skein, BURGUNDY SPARKLES has been dyed with Lac. Shot through with gold sparkles, this 4Ply Merino wool is a beautiful burgundy red and is my new favourite colour scheme ever.


Indigo Gradient Mini-Skein Packs

Just listed today, Tinctorias new Indigo Gradient, packs of 5 mini-skeins in a beautiful Indigo Blue. Each hand dyed 25g mini-skein is totally unique, naturally dyed with Indigo. From the loveliest deep Jeans-Blue to sky blue, each skein has its own variations along its length making for a super scarf, hat or wrap! Two sets are available now, with another batch coming very soon.



Multi-Coloured Yarns

Oh we had such fun here at Tinctoria last week hand dyeing a batch of multi-coloured yarn using natural dyes!

Just listed in our etsy shop is SUMMERS DAY, a super bright skein dyed using Onion Skins and Indigo. Using a gradual colour change from yellow through green to blue, this skein of 100% Merino wool just shouts happiness.


Our second multi-coloured skein COOL BERRIES, was dyed with Lac and Indigo, the colours from cool read to blue with purples in between. I can’t wait to see what you can knit up with this one!


Our third multi-coloured skein RASPBERRY RIPPLE was achieved with successive dips in Lac, this has created a range of cool reds and pinks. Just beautiful.


Sock Yarn

At Tinctoria we naturally dye Blue Faced Leicester sock yarn, a great 4ply that creates a lovely hard wearing sock, although 4ply yarn is not just for knitting socks. Beautiful shawls, lightweight hats or gloves can be made with it too.

A basic pair of hand knitted socks can be created from a 100g skein of 4ply sock wool. We personally believe the best basic sock pattern out there at the moment can be found at…/basic-sock-pattern-and-t… where a PDF pattern can be downloaded for free that is supported by step by step guides on the blog.

Some great ideas for Tinctoria 4ply sock yarn:
Grey for the main body of the sock, with toe and heel in yellow.
Yellow, slate and olive stripes.
Wonderfully odd socks by randomly striping every colour available!

Of course, if none of these colours appeal to you, let us know and we will dye a batch just for you! A totally unique, one off colour of your choosing.DSC00325.JPG
