About Becca & Bluebell Yarns

Becca, a white woman with long dark hair stands in front of wooden crates full of brightly coloured yarn.

Bluebell Yarns began in late 2015 when I, Becca, decided to turn my hobby of dyeing wool into a business.

By 2015 I had already been knitting for several years, and occasionally dyed yarn for myself as I found it difficult to find the kind of yarn I wanted to craft with. I searched for hand-dyed wool which was British, non-superwash and contained no synthetic materials. I could find lots of lovely hand-dyed yarn, but the majority were superwash treated, or were most commonly blends such as superwash Merino and nylon.

The kind of wool I wanted to use could, and still can be easily found in its natural colours. While the natural colours are beautiful, and I do enjoy knitting with them, I didn’t want to be forced to choose between bright and fun colours on yarn I didn’t enjoy knitting with, and the natural colours of the yarn I did.

My goal with Bluebell Yarns is to bridge this gap and bring fun, bright colours together with the wonderful characteristics of natural British yarn.
