Overlooking ‘Moel Famau’ – the tallest peak of the Clwydian range here in North Wales – Paula, at Moel Vew Yarn, uses the finest yarns she can source and gently hand dyes each one with thought and care, using natural botanical ingredients to create colours that truly reflect the natural landscape and changing seasons.
The dyes – Paula always uses natural dyes, mostly extracted from plants, roots and barks, some of which have been found and foraged from the kitchen, the garden, the hills, the fields…
Natural dyes captivate, they produce the most cohesive, beautiful colour. They are naturally variable and this is what makes the results so desirable-the skein you buy will be completely unique to the specific dyestuff, when it was harvested and how it was applied. Natural colours age with charm.

Botanical Sock Blanks, Double Stranded – so for all you sock knitters that work two socks at the same time, this is magical. The sock blanks come pre-knitted, so the knitting comes out with the pattern that has been added to it, and in this case it is double stranded so that the socks will almost be identical!
