I absolutely adore your Skye yarn & so I bought quite a lot as it was the last time I could buy the discontinued yarn. I am rather sad that I will not be able to buy any in the future. I do not understand why you have such limited chunky yarn now!

Prompt delivery, beautifully packed, and a treat to open. The colours are just luscious and the yarn lovely to knit with.

Beautiful yarns. I used to buy these regularly but the shop closed down and I’ve been without them for some years. I was delighted to find your website. I love making scarves with them. The textures of the wool are beautiful for these.

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. 👍👍

introducing the new 'free spirit' throw kit

Introducing our latest Colinette throw kit. Two boxes of sumptuous hand dyed yarns, enough to make one of three throw designs. We include a pattern booklet and you can select from 6 sumptuous colour combinations. 

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.

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….
