Black Isle Yarns
Naturally Dyed Local Yarn, Patterns and Book, Gifts
Black Isle Yarns is a small yarn producer making yarns from locally sourced wool. I am based on the Black Isle in the Scottish Highlands and I work with a small group of local farmers and smallholders to select the best of their fleeces for my yarns, all of which are custom spun in the UK. My range includes single farm yarns, single breed yarns and several unique blends. The yarns include 4ply, Sport and DK weights, and worsted plus woollen spun.
As well as offering my yarns in their undyed shades I naturally dye them with locally foraged dye plants and sustainably sourced natural dye material. I particularly enjoy creating tonal shades which reflect the colours I see around me on the beautiful Black Isle.
I offer several patterns designed in my yarns plus yarn kits to knit them. My pattern collection ‘Perspectives’ is launching in November and the book is available to pre-order now. I also stock gifts such as tea towels, paper goods and skincare.
