Skein : Bliss DK
Skein is owned and run by Kristen and Paul in their studio located in the beautiful coastal town of Coffs Harbour, Australia. Their colourways are inspired by landscapes from coastal vistas to rural and urban environs; always taking inspiration from the world around them. Their colourways range from subtle to bright, and all are richly layered and dyed with attention to detail and equal doses of love and care.
Kristen & Paul feel strongly about caring for this beautiful planet. They do not use harsh chemicals, heir dye method uses minimal water, and they recycle and reuse their dye containers and manufacturing waste. They want their footprint to be as small as possible.
It is a pleasure to offer Skein Yarn for you to enjoy.
