As a knitter obsessed I love nothing more than a fresh hank of stunning colourful yarn. I get really excited about hand dyed individual lots of yarn that give me the chance to create something unique. I love that whatever I have made with one of a kind yarn, it will be like unlike anything anyone else has created. It's special.
At HeyJay Hand Dyed Yarns I stock yarns hand dyed by yours truly. For now I am a one woman operation and I put my heart and soul into all my work. I am proud of what I have to offer and hope they will bring joy and excitement to people's stashes and projects.
My colourways are one of a kind. I have a bit of a 'gun ho' method of dyeing and tend to let the creativity flow instead of having a series of repeated dyes. This means that I always have new colourways to showcase and no two batches are ever quite the same. There is a steady flow of new variegated shades coming throughout the year so keep an eye as I try as often as possible to get new colours listed online.
If you see a colourway you like, snap it up when you see it as I cannot match the skein you may already have in your hand. Don't see enough of a colour you like? Drop me a line and we can look at arranging a custom batch for your project instead. Got an idea for a special custom colourway that you fancy? Let me know! I take commissions too.
Looking for wholesale? Drop me a line, I'm always happy to gain new stockists.
Each hank of yarn is made from high quality fibre. They are dyed with professional acid dyes and each hank will be slightly different from the next. They are stored in a smoke free, cat friendly (cats are kept clear of precious fibre) environment and treated with care and love.
If a yarns is listed as superwash this means it won't felt up and destroy your soul if it accidentally gets thrown in the wash. These are machine washable although I recommend a cool wash to preserve the vibrancy of the dye. For non-superwash, be a bit more delicate and stick with a gentle cool hand wash (heat + agitation = felt). Personally I use a cool hand wash regardless of superwash status with a slug of Eucalan Wool Soak: sling it in the sink, let it soak for a bit, no need to rinse, just squeeze excess water out and leave to dry, easy!
Any questions, just give me a shout!
