Digglyshire Yarns

Diggly, The Professor of Fibre and Dyeing Alchemy, brings The Magic of Digglyshire to Cambridge

Diggly is The Muse, The Name and The Paws behind The Digglyshire brand.  He believes that life can’t get any better when you get the most wonderful treats (for Diggly to keep going) , the best natural fibres and, through the magic of alchemy , adding love and colour, you can actually knit your dream. 

Diggly and his mystical dyer are delighted to share with you their love for the finer things in life-the  best natural hand dyed yarns, the most beautiful hand painted fabrics, the rarest bespoke project bags and accessories  as well as their fantastic knitting , sock and hand gauges. 

And with Paws on their Hearts they can say- if you can dream a colour, we can dye it.

It’s now a tradition of many years for them to give away one  (or more) of their lovely products as a free gift to one lucky knitter every time they go Live.

Yellow Van Yarns

At Yellow Van Yarns, our goal is to create unique colourways on good quality yarns. 

My name is Wendy and I am the Dyer behind Yellow Van Yarns and I am super excited to be taking part in my first  Cambridge yarn Festival.

The inspiration comes from my Filipino heritage and the places that I have travelled to in our yellow 1976 VW camper van, affectionately named Darren.  I love working with bold colours and seeing how they work together to create something unique.

My Mabuhay Collection is a showcase of the bold colours of the Philippines and I hope that after seeing some of the collection, it might inspire you to visit some of their 7000 islands.

In the meantime I will provide great quality yarn for your creations and projects.
