Phileas Yarns was born out of two passions – travelling and knitting. Inspired by Sylvie’s journeys and wanders – past or yet to come, she has created a collection of affordable hand dyed yarns focused on colour. Every colour has a story behind it, and there is nothing Sylvie likes better than to share these with you.

Not too long ago, two slightly yarn obsessed friends, Liz and Fiona, with a love of all things magical took their penchant for beautiful hand dyed skeins to another level to create Yarn Angels Ltd.

Yarn Angels produce hand dyed yarn with tender loving care from their home. We love experimenting with colour and fibres and are continuously learning along our journey. Most of our skeins are OOAK but occasionally we have repeatable colours in our shop. The Angels work well together due to Fiona’s passion for bright, contrasting colours and Liz’s love of graduating and complimenting colours.
