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.

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!

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 took advantage of the buy 2 get 1 free sale in a BIG WAY. Sam was concerned that maybe my credit card information had been compromised, and he contacted me to doublecheck that I had indeed purchased that much yarn. - This goes well beyond customer service!

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….
