Yarn Vibes Limited Edition Organic

Each skein in our limited edition collection has been dyed in small batches that will not be repeated. Each hank is slightly different as it has been hand dyed using 100% organic plants. We feel that the variations in color and the tonal quality of the wool enhance the beauty of this unique product. Please ensure that you purchase a sufficient quantity for your project.

Love,

Yarn Vibes

Steps Along Our Organic Path

Inspiration Strikes

Yarn Vibes Organic has been created by Joan Lucey, a shopkeeper turned organic wool producer from County Cork, who has a passion for supporting rural Ireland and sustainability. On this journey, Joan set about meeting amazing creators, all equally passionate about organic Irish yarn.

Happy Sheep

Our organic fleece is sourced from Fergal, a 9th generation farmer, who rears sheep on his organic farm in County Kildare. The care and well-being of his flock is of utmost importance to Fergal, and we firmly believe that happy sheep make for a happy knitting experience.

Spinning Yarns

After a gentle wash at Standard Wool, the fleece is sent off to Chris in Donegal Yarns where it is spun by Pauric and his team. What begins in Donegal as raw, cleaned fleece leaves as traditionally spun, rustic yarn ready to be dyed by Jennifer in County Clare.

Colors from Nature

Jennifer is the only hand-dyer in Ireland who uses organic plants to create beautiful shades through her natural dying process. She harvests all of her water from the plentiful rainfall in the west of Ireland making as little impact as possible on the environment.

A Yarn Like No Other...

Yarn Vibes Organic grew from a desire to support Irish farmers and bolster the Irish wool industry. We are incredibly proud that our knitting yarn is authentically Irish, and the first Irish organic wool in the world. What started as a small concept has now become a supportive community working towards a more fair and sustainable future, one strand at a time.
