This beautiful yarn is a special edition the from the Cafe Collection. It combines two dye methods into one spectacular self striping sustainable, natural hand dyed yarn. From serene blue to dusky pink this yarn is named after one of our common but under appreciated garden birds the Chaffinch.  The male adult bird has a gorgeous blue crest and collar next to dusky peachy pink brest feathers.  


To make the dyes in the Cafe Collection I collect materials from local Loch Ness cafe and make them into natural dyes.  The focus is on reducing waste and using ingrediants to make a range of colours. Typical ingredients include coffee, leaves, peels and avocado skins.


Each 100g skein is 400m of Merino in with a self striping effect, perfect for fun socks.


I offer free shipping for all orders over £50.
