We both read The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan and loved it! The idea that someone picks up objects that are left behind or forgotten and tried to reunite them with their owners touches my heart. When we first discussed dyeing yarn to go with this collection, we had a ton of ideas to choose from. Whittling it down to only 6 was a challenge but these 6 parts resonated the most with us.

This listing is for the color LOVELY CUP OF TEA because we couldn’t have a collection without Sunshine. Whenever things get tense, she goes off to make ‘ a lovely cup of tea’.

This yarn is a soft yellow with splashes of purple, blue and green.

Our yarns are hand dyed or hand painted using professional acid dyes. We wash each skein carefully after dying but slight bleeding may occur during first wash. Skeins may vary in color slightly so if using more than one skein of yarn in a project, please alternate skeins every few rows.

Care of yarn - superwash merino will allow you to wash your items in the washing machine but please use cold water. For best results and care, hand washing is recommended.

Sweater quantities of yarn can be ordered - please message us for information.
