Green Eyed Monsters Handpainted Yarn & Fibre

 

GEM yarn is created using a range of beautiful base yarns, fibres and dyes. Being an obsessive knitter and spinner myself, I love spending time with yarn and I always aim to produce something which is both enjoyable to work with and ends up as a beautiful finished object.

I am dyeing too quickly to keep a complete list of what is currently in stock, but this page will give you an overview. If you want to see everything, check out my stash pages on Ravelry or my sold items on Etsy.
