Welcome to Perran Yarns – luxurious hand-dyed yarns from Cornwall

I have a passion for individually hand-dyeing luxury yarns in beautiful, wearable colourways so you can enjoy knitting, crocheting and weaving your own unique garments and accessories. Use your own favourite designs or my original kits and patterns.

Why choose hand-dyed over commercially-dyed yarns?

 Hand-dyeing gives totally unique colourways in both semi-solid and variegated colourways which vary slightly within each skein and batch, meaning you get a truly exclusive yarn for your project.

Yarns and colourways

It takes time to hand-dye yarns, so it makes sense to start with the best quality natural fibre yarns to give a truly luxurious and individual finished product. Our range focuses on sumptuous yarns which are not so easy to find, so you’ll discover natural fibre blends you may not even have heard of before.

Our yarn bases include silk, baby camel, baby alpaca, seacell (derived from seaweed), tencel (made from wood pulp), linen and many others.

I believe that colourways should look beautiful in your finished project, not just in the skein! Our yarns and original kits give you a handmade accessory that is a joy to create, soft and comfortable to wear, and will co-ordinate with many of your outfits.

Hand-dyed ribbons

Complimenting the yarns, I also hand-dye recycled sari and chiffon silk ribbons in similar colourways.

These rustic ribbons are ideal for many different textile and mixed media crafts from textile jewellery to bouquet wraps – browse through my Sari silk ribbon projects Pinterest page for inspiration.
