Hand Dyed Yarn – Third Vault Yarns

£22.00 per 100g skein

As part of our Mill Open Weekend celebrations, we have curated a glorious selection of hand dyed yarns, showcasing the dyers who use our bases to create their beautiful wares.

Lola, of Third Vault Yarn uses our Exmoor Sock base and our Yarnadelic Worsted base to create their fantasy-inspired hand dyed skeins. We absolutely adore these shades – Lola manages to create bright colourways with popping colours, as well as lovely subtle shades. Something for everyone!

Lola’s obsessive about crafting, with an addiction to knitting and playing with colour, and a steadfast commitment to staying geeky. The majority if not all of TVY colourways are inspired by Science Fiction and Fantasy themes.

Visit Lola’s website to see more of their yummy yarns.

Our Exmoor Sock base…

Our Exmoor Sock yarn enhances the durable character and bounce of the fibre from our local Exmoor Blueface sheep – a cross breed of the Exmoor Horn (full bodied and hard-wearing) and the Bluefaced Leicester (renowned for its softness and lustre). We’ve added naturally dark browny-black Devon Zwartbles giving extra bounce and a subtle fleck of colour, plus Falklands Corriedale to enhance softness and stitch definition and a hint of Nylon for durability.

60% Exmoor Blueface / 20% Corriedale / 10% Zwartbles / 10% Nylon

400m / 100g

Our Yarnadelic Worsted Base…

Yarnadelic is 100% Falklands Corriedale. The breed is around 100 years old and was derived by crossing the Merino and Lincoln Longwool. It is one of our favourite fibres as its properties are a perfect balance of delightful softness and bounce from the Merino combined with the slight lustre and long staple length of the Lincoln Longwool – a fibre lover’s dream!

Personally we love the way these hand dyed skeins work up with our mill dyed heathers. Please be aware that these are hand dyed skeins, so each skein is slightly different. If making a larger project then you may wish to stripe skeins to ensure an even colour throughout.
