Jitterbug is Back!

It is finally here and we have packed more meters into a 100g. The new jitterbug is 375m (410yd) per 100g skein. Same beautiful 100% mulesing-free superwash merino and, of course, dyed in our signature way. Come join the party.

 

A kaleidoscope of hand dyed yarn awaits

Colinette and myself (her son) welcome all knitters, textile creators, and lovers of fabulously coloured fibres.  We wish to invite you on an exploration of our scrumptious hand dyed yarns. Colinette Yarns has been hand dyed yarn specialists for nearly 40 years now and just like the very first days on our kitchen stove, we still follow my father’s book of spells and incantations. He was a true artist who craved colour. Each skein of yarn from wool to cotton is dyed in small pasta pots, a nod to our times in Italy. I could tell you so much and will do, but for now sit back and enjoy our world of stunning colours. Created by us artists for artists… yes that is you.

Excellent service altogether with a very swift response to an extra skein needed. The quality is equal to previous buys from the old Colinette. The packaging is exceptional, as if it is a present ie purple yarn wrapped in purple tissue paper in a black box. It is wonderful to see Colinette back!

Just love point five. The colours are gorgeous and on large needles it grows so quickly. Pity it is so expensive or I would be knitting with it all the time. It’s definitely my favourite

I love love love your products. The wool came well packaged each in its own little box enveloped in beautifully wrapped tissue paper. As I opened each box I was amazed by the assortment of wool. It was like birthday and Christmas all at once!
I am a slow knitter and so I am trying to up a gear so I can use them in my swoncho!
Customer service is fine but I feel the website could have a tweak as I found myself scrolling a lot back up to the top. So something as easy as a button to take you back up would help.
Overall I’m really happy with my order. 👍👍

Vibrancy, Love, Passion, Yarn, Wool and Fibre

The purity and intense bursts of colour that we paint onto our hand dyed yarns are straight from the playbook of artists like Turner, Monet and Giotto. We blend shades from primary colours just as the masters have done down through the ages.

colinette's Journey

The road that led Colinette to play with hand painted yarn
and fibre started out many years ago. There was something very tactile about
super chunky wool that embraced the jewel- like colours. I called this slub yarn
‘Point Five’ and it became Colinette Yarns’ signature dish.

Other fibres followed. Silks, textured chenille, soft mohair
and finer sock wool to name but a few. All waiting to be hand dyed.

 

Let’s go back to the early 1970s and meet the two creators.
Colinette a textile artist and her artist painter partner Geoff. The setting is
southern Italy where the beautiful sunlight starts the magic….
