About Perran Yarns

Perran Yarns

Luxury yarn and ribbon handdyed in beauiful wearable colourways

Hi - and welcome to Perran Yarns!

My shop started as an outlet for my knitting and crochet passion - originally passed down from my grandmothers. One knitted, the other crocheted, so I had the best of both worlds!

Sewing seams is not on my favourites list. This is why you will find my patterns often use magic loop technique on a long circular needle - seam-free and so easy to carry around in a handbag! If you don't know how to do this just take a peek on YouTube for an easy lesson. You'll never look back.

I taught myself to dye yarns when I couldn't find the colour blends and yarn bases I wanted here in the UK for my own projects. Now I am thrilled to be one of many indie yarn dyers, each with their own slightly different results. My Perran Yarns are my tribute to living near Perranporth on the beautiful south-west coast of Cornwall, England which is frequently the inspiration for my colourways.

I love to kettle-dye vibrant saturated colours and am always amazed by the myriad of shades resulting from mixing them in the dye pot. My own need for supersoft non-itchy yarns to wear against sensitive skin means that I choose only the softest natural fibre base yarns to dye; you will often find blends of tencel and silk in my stock. I dye in small batches in my home kitchen, and keep a dye recipe book so colourways are as repeatable as hand-dyeing gets!

Custom dyeing is becoming a speciality; I have dyed yarns to match food, fashion photos, and wedding dress fabric! If you have a particular shade of yarn in mind, get in touch - I love the challenge of a colour match and custom dyes are priced the same as my regular stock, based on the yarn cost.

Take a while to browse around my shop and feel free to contact me if you have any questions, ideas, or custom order requests.
