ABOUT

Soft Like Kittens yarn is hand dyed by Annette M. Russell in Auckland, New Zealand. (Hi!)

I love to make nature-inspired colourways that knit and crochet up as beautifully as they appear in the skein.


You can find more about me and Soft Like Kittens yarns on my video podcast Gentle Ribbing, where I preview new yarns in each week's show, and in my Ravelry group. I am also on Twitter and Instagram.

SHOP

Soft Like Kittens is currently taking an indefinite hiatus.

At this stage I don't know if or when I will be returning to regular dyeing and I am not taking any custom orders. My apologies to anyone inconvenienced or disappointed.

Occasionally, however, I dye a batch of one-of-a-kind skeins and have a "flash sale" on Etsy - like an online popup shop!

The next of these is scheduled for Saturday, November 29th 2014 at 2pm NZDT (click here for your local time)
