Eden Cottage Yarns is a primarily hand-dyed yarn company based in Yorkshire, with an emphasis on simple, understated colours that have a timeless appeal. Owner/dyer Victoria takes her inspiration from the natural world, resulting in a wonderful palette of colours that complement the Eden Cottage patterns (for knitting and crochet) beautifully. We currently stock their Milburn 4ply and a wide range of printed patterns.
