Important Note About Colours
Actual yarn colours will vary by batch and will vary from what is displayed here, due to lighting, graphics compression and device resolution and colour settings.
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.
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!

Each ball of Sunshine yarn is made with care and love by hand – this means that every ball is unique. Every effort is made to standardise dye colours and quantities within dye lots however, hand dying creates 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. To even out knitting/crocheting for large projects, it is recommended that balls are alternated every few rows to achieve a more uniform effect. Colours and pictures may vary due to lighting, monitor settings, compression and graphics resolutions.
