Please fill in the form below if you'd like to be notified when it becomes available.

This luxury, plush 4ply/fingering weight yarn is a blend of 50% fine Merino and 50% pure Mulberry Silk.  Colours really 'pop' on this base and naturally it is unbelievably soft and smooth.

Meander takes its name from the word for a bend in a river, and is a nod to the slow, sometimes winding process of creating a beautiful handmade garment. This colourway is a deep, tonal teal expressing more blue or more green depending on your point of view!

Small batch, hand-dyed yarn from Heather Weir's studio in Lower Hutt, Aotearoa/New Zealand. Everything, from sourcing the yarn to shipping, is done with love and care by hand. The nature of hand-dyed yarn is that no two skeins are exactly the same, creating beautifully nuanced colourways. 

Heather sources the finest quality, fully traceable and mulesing-free, ethically, sustainably farmed yarns from New Zealand and abroad.  

The dyes used are made in Australia and New Zealand. They are acid dyes that are used for dyeing protein-based fibre (such as wool and silk). Every care is taken to use only the quantities necessary to create the colourways. This means that the dyepot is fully exhausted when the dyeing is complete - that is, the water is clear, so it can be reused for the next batch

Please note, as this product is hand dyed there will be colour variation between batches.
