We have an enormous appetite for unusual and fine yarns from all across the world. We like to think we have a very discriminating palate. But any connoisseur must have a standard of excellence to use as a baseline. For us, that baseline is Colinette Yarns.
Elise discovered Colinette Yarns, specifically Point Five, many, many years ago in London, while waiting for Kevin to return from a business meeting. The amazing and unique kolours and textures of this amazing wool made her want to cross the Atlantic and move to Europe. Alas, Kevin said, “No.” Instead, he sweetly offered to seek out Point Five for her in the far flung shops of Greater London whenever he was there on his frequent trips. And that he did, until we figured out a way to have far more Colinette in our lives—we opened a yarn shop.
And now, we figured out how to bring Colinette to you!
Colinette’s signature is hand painted yarns. Every skein is literally painted by hand and the results are the most amazing blend of colours we have seen. Each skein is unique and each fiber and kind of yarn absorb the dyes with vast differences. This is the art of Colinette.
We are proud to be complete stockists of Colinette, which means that we have every colourway of every line of yarn and every book in print. And, by special order, we can get any European colourway, as well, which we will do for even the smallest quantities.
