Sionnach Yarns

Situé au cœur du Burren, région irlandaise entourée par Galway Bay et les montagnes du Burren, la nature m’inspire énormément.
C’est pourquoi j’essaie d’utiliser un maximun de plantes locales. Ayant la chance d’avoir un compagnon chef de cuisine, je récupère également les ‘déchets’ tel que peaux d’oignons, d’avocats et bien d’autres.

Tous mes fils sont teints naturellement. Chaque couleurs est uniques et très difficilement voir impossible à reproduire, c’est pourquoi je vous conseille de commander les quantités nécessaires à vos ouvrages.

English:
Based in the beautiful Burren, Ireland, surrounded by Galway Bay and Burren Mountains, nature is a huge inspiration for me.
As mush as possible, I try to use local plants but also “food scrap” like onions skins, avocado pits, …

All my yarns are naturally hand dyed by me. Every colours are unique and very hard or even impossible to reproduct, this is why I highly recommand you to order the quantity you need.

Penny Lane Yarns, hand dyed in Zurich, Switzerland

Fierce knitter, Penny Lane was born of my impatience to wait for parcels bought on the other side of the world at great dyeing studios. Today, I happily offer my line on the local market.
Create all these colors is a joy that I love to share with my customers.
I hope you'll have as much fun knitting PLY as I did to dye them!

Tricoteuse acharnée, Penny Lane est sans doute née de mon impatience à attendre les colis achetés à l’autre bout du monde dans d’autres studios de teinture. Aujourd’hui, je suis heureuse de proposer mes laines sur le marché local. 
Créer toutes ces couleurs est une joie que j’adore partager avec mes clientes.  J’espère que vous aurez autant de plaisir à tricoter ces écheveaux que j'en ai eu à les teindre!

Cushendale Woolen Mills

Cushendale Woollen Mills is one of the few remaining Irish woollen mills continuing to create quality authentic textiles from the fleece of Irish sheep at their historic mill in Graiguenamanagh Co.Kilkenny.
The first mill was established on this site in 1204 by Cistercian monks, and the Cushen family trace their weaving heritage as far back as 1778.   Cushendale designs and creates quality bespoke textiles from Irish wool, lambswool & mohair.  All Cushendale yarns are uniquely dyed at the mill, a delicate and signature process which enhances the yarn fibres for a softer finish in a bespoke colour palette.
