Hand Dyed Yarn Sneak Peek

I wanted to give readers of the blog a sneak peek of the hand dyed yarn that I have started producing.

The photo is of a 100g skein of 100% Superwash Blue Faced Leicester.

I'm getting to know the camera and the settings to get the most accurate colours possible. If any readers have any tips on photographing yarn please leave a comment on this blog post.

The yarn that I have been dyeing is a mix of semi solids and variegated yarn and will be available from The Quizzical Owl's site in the very near future. I'm thoroughly enjoying dyeing the yarn. It's creative and therapeutic. I'm looking forward to trying out new dyeing techniques, colours and yarns.

Watch this space!


  1. Very nice! I love anything with a splash of yellow in it.

  2. I love The Yarn Yard's photography - blank background and full concentration on the colours. I truly adore the colours on that yarn though - is it really short pulses of colour? I cannot stand pooling/self-striping, but that one I do love!
