We have 1 mini skein set of 100% vegan friendly cotton 4ply fingering yarn available to buy immediately. Each mini skein is 25g and 85m. This colourway was inspired by my favourite animal...Sharks!
I am a crocheter and knitter myself so I only use the best of the best when it comes to making hand dyed yarn. These yarns are hand dyed with professional grade acid dyes and then rinsed after the dyeing process. Please check the label for washing instructions when possible it is preferable to hand wash to keep the colour. Please be aware that there may be a small amount of dye bleeding out in the first wash (although this is unusual because I am very thorough with my rinsing). Drying in direct sunlight can also fade the colour over time, so where possible, please avoid.
Buying local and supporting emerging trade is very important to the ideals of The Mermaids Purse Yarns. My vegan friendly cotton is sourced from Three Bears Yarn. Not only are they an emerging British company, they have found a way to make cotton that doesn't split. My animal yarns are sourced from Rooster Yarns. They are a relatively new british company with a focus on sustainable luxury wools.
Please bear in mind that whilst every effort is made to make sure the photograph accurately reflects the yarn colour monitors do vary.
All Items come securely packaged in a waterproof envelope with a special gift and washing instructions.
