ColourSpun yarns are created by hand; each skein is imbued with the artist’s energy and will have its own unique characteristics. Only the finest quality pure cotton is used; coloured in a smoke free and pet friendly environment using earth friendly dyes which have excellent wash fast and light fast properties. ColourSpun have developed a process that uses the minimum amount of water and solar heat and when that’s not possible – gas, which is a cleaner alternative to our national electricity supply. The effect produced by the natural dying process will bring your projects to life.

A note on Hand-dyed:
Hand-dyed colours have an incredible marble-like effect. Each ball can differ from the next subtly and this creates a natural flow of colour that opaque industrial dying cannot match. Our yarns are all dyed in small batches so there will be variation when multiple batches are used in orders/kits.
The items we sell, are made to order and are hand dyed, air dried products. We are not a warehouse operation and we work with small scale producers so that we can offer unique and gorgeous yarn for you to use in your projects. Some of the kits have very specific lead times before they ship – these are usually related to Crochet Alongs. This date is mentioned in the main product description.
If you would like expedited shipping (3-5 days globally from date of dispatch) – please select World Wide Express (Serviced by DHL) ** not available for all items or to all territories. If you are in an outlying area, please add 2-4 extra days for delivery.
Once goods have shipped, you will be able to track the movement of your goodies under order management in your account.
Our yarn is made by order, hand dyed and air dried – the good old fashioned way. Handcrafted with love and passion for you.
Please allow around 2 weeks for your yarn to be lovingly created before it is packed and shipped to you!
