YARN AND SOCK CLUBS

I have two yarn clubs Around the World in 12 Months yarn club and the Funky Fins Sock club both have a rolling monthly subscription and an international option.
Few things are as meditative as treadling on a spinning wheel. I stock both undyed exotic plant fibres like banana, seacell, ramie, Egyptian cotton and tencel as well as British Shetland wool.
Rolags, custom blends and dyed to order fibres are also available.
ABOUT THE MERMAID'S PURSE YARNS
Our Background and Values
In 2016 I became increasingly frustrated trying to find fun, funky and bright cotton yarns. This frustration tuned into the joy of hand dying indie yarn, wool and fibre. All items are dyed by me in my little greenhouse near the North Sea using only the best and locally sourced materials. I hope you will find as much joy in using my yarns and i do in dyeing them.
