I am a crocheter and knitter myself so I only use the best of the best when it comes to making hand dyed yarn. I use professional dyes and when possible use natural products. Buying local and supporting emerging trade is very important to the ideals of The Mermaids Purse Handmade.
My cotton is sourced from Three Bears Yarn. Not only are they a emerging British company, they have found a way to make cotton that doesnt split. https://www.threebearsyarn.co.uk/
My animal yarns are sourced from Rooster Yarns. They are a relativly new british company with a focus on sustainable luxury wools. http://www.roosteryarns.com/
Please note, due to the hand dyeing process small fluctuations in colour blending can occur.
