About Perran Yarns

Perran Yarns is a small artisan business based near Perranporth on the beautiful Cornish coastline, run by indie yarn dyer Steph Thornton. Steph handdyes luxury yarns in beautiful wearable colourways from her home dye studio, and sells them worldwide via her Etsy shop.
There are many luxury yarns to choose from, ranging from laceweight through to superchunky. Natural fibre yarn blends include silk, seacell (derived from seaweed!), merino, Bluefaced Leicester, linen, bamboo, cotton, tencel and many more.
The yarns are ideal for your special knitting, crochet, weaving or felting projects.
A growing range of knitting and crochet patterns are also available, along with kits including the pattern and yarn which can be purchased giftwrapped ready to give as a unique gift.
Collaborations with other UK-based designers have produced patterns and kits using Perran Yarns. A portion of each kit sale price goes to the pattern designer. Let me know if you’d like to collaborate with your designs!
Steph also handdyes a range of recycled sari and chiffon silk ribbons, sold in 10 metre packs suitable for a huge range of craft uses from cardmaking and textile jewellery through to bouquet and gift wrapping.
Custom dye orders are welcome.
