Free postage & packing for Yarndale!


5 x mini skeins, multicoloured

Free P&P from now till midnight on Sunday 26th Sept.

I can't get to Yarndale due to my dodgy knee. But I have stocked up all my yarn (there's lots of sweater quantities). So, I'll refund your P&P to all of the UK for anything bought from the website between now and midnight Sunday 26th Sept. Pay as usual on the website, and I'll refund you as I pack the yarn, via PayPal.

I know you'll miss the squish, but this is as close to being at Yarndale as I can manage.

No DyeNinja at Yarndale 2021


No DyeNinja at Yarndale 2021

Hello everyone. I'm sorry to have to tell you that DyeNinja will not be attending the Yarndale show this year.

I'm waiting to have knee surgery. Last week I did Perth Yarn Fest (fabulous!) which, due to COVID is the only festival I've attempted for two years. The knee did not hold up so well. Yarndale is a bigger event in terms of ground covered and I know that the knee will not be good - and may not make it through. I don't want it coming apart altogether as that could mean they can't do the replacement. So I've pulled out of Yarndale for 2021. You will all have a great time I'm sure. There will be loads of lovely vendors.

And by 21st September I'll have all the updated yarn quantities on the website..... Meantime, I'm gutted.


Closed till after the Yarn Festivals

DyeNinja is away to the yarn festivals at Perth www.perthfestivalofyarn.uk on 11 and 12 September, and then Yarndale www.yarndale.com on 25 and 26 September. All the yarn is going with me. The shop will reopen with updated stocks on 4 October. Have a lovely September


All sales to the EU suspended


It is with sadness that I have to tell you all that sales to the European Union are suspended until further notice.

I did not want to do this. I love my EU customers. But the GB government (I use the word loosely), have failed to make any arrangement for sales to the EU. This means that each country may charge whatever it wants by way of import tax and duties on parcels from GB. Customers are liable to pay these fees on receipt. But many countries have imposed punitive tax on goods form the EU. Also tax and duties can change with a no notice. It is not fair to my customers who, when they buy a skein of yarn, may have to pay twice its cost in additional tax. If the customer decides that they don't want to receive the parcel, because of the high tax, when it is returned to me I have to pay the tax on it (or each country can decide not to return the parcel and the wool will be destroyed). As a small business I cannot afford to take this on. My government sucks. I'm heartbroken. Sheila

Mail in the Time of Coronavirus


Posting mail during Coronavirus

I do all the wrapping and posting myself. I will be wearing gloves and mask while I pack your yarn. All yarn will be double wrapped during the crisis, so you can discard the outer layer, that's been handled in the mail, as soon as you receive it It goes to the post office where our local post people are carefully applying the two metre distancing rule.

Receiving mail during Coronavirus

When your parcel arrives - and it may take a little longer during this time - you can remove and discard the outer layer of packaging. Please open your parcel carefully so that you don't cut into the inner wrapping. I would wear gloves while doing this and wash my hands after. Inside there will be a second wrapper. I suggest that you quarantine your yarn, in it's inner wrapper, for a couple of weeks. We don't know how long Coronavirus can live on wool, so let's be on the safe side.

Stay Home. Be Safe.
