Debonnaire Ads Landscapes 3-1

The majority of my effort is with developing my hand dyed yarn business. I carry a good range of base yarns sourced from the UK, Italy and Americas including wholly British yarns. I tend to dye colours I love so you will see lots of jewel tones,speckles along with some neutrals- especially greys.

Please visit my website which carries my hand dyed yarns, silk yarns hand dyed to my colour ways and  other commercial yarns I’ve sourced directly from mills.

I also carry a large range of Mille Colori  baby, Luxe and regular sock yarns and Blue Heron rayon metallic yarns. These yarns are not on the website  and available at shows for the most part- please call me if you would like to order (erica@debonnaireyarns.com/0788-799-4351).

It is almost impossible to keep the full range of my hand dyed colours on the site- please feel free to contact me if you see a colour you would like in a different base yarn. I am happy to dye to order! Also, yarns are available to wholesale, please contact leif interested in this aspect.




Silk Yarns- Embellished with sequins, beads or lurex or Straight. Hand dyed to Debonnaire colours. View a much larger selection on my website. Colours are changed and added to on a regular basis. If you have seen something at one of the shows not pictured on , please call, I likely have it! If you are looking for a special colour please get in touch, I should be able to get it for you,

Some of my recent hand dyed yarns:


and of course I dye solids as well, a few examples:

Blue Heron rayon metallic yarns sell out quickly, here are some examples of these spectacular yarns  call for latest stock 




Cashmere Yarns– spun in italy, large selection of colours in DK and 4-ply weights. Indie hand painted cashmere as well!

Alpaca Yarns- some spun and dyed in Italy, some dyed by Debonnaire. A large selection of mostly DKs and 4 Plys. I love alpaca yarns and it is surprisingly robust when mixed with merino without losing the characteristic softness

Debonnaire Basic Merino Yarns : anything but basic, these yarns are spun and commercially dyed in Italy and available in a big range of colours. Also competitively priced. I have 2 weights- DK at 240 m/100 grams at £9.50 and 4 Ply/Sock  Superwash with 400m/100 gms at £11/11.50 (space dyed). This is a nicely spun very bouncy yarn and the DK felts beautifully.


    Lang Mille Colori Socks and Lace, Mille Colori Luxe,Mille Colori Baby : Stocking  just about the complete range of these soft yarns, I have been slightly obsessed recently. Not just for socks, make a shawl, scarf, sweater whatever.

  1. I am looking to knit up the Pampa Jacket which calls for the Rio De La Plata Artista yarn. I am wondering if you have any of it in a brown or off white color. I think I need about 1400 yards.
    Please email me & let me know:)

  2. I purchased some Debonnaire Baby Ruffle yarn (pinks/cream) at the Harrogate Knitting and Stitching Show last month. Could you please tell me where I can purchase more of this yarn? Thank you.

    • Hi Sylvia- I have several colours ruffle yarn, it is priced at £3.50 per 50 gm/25m ball. Please let me know if this is of interest and what colours you would like. You will need 3 balls for a scarf. Many thanks, Erica

  7. Hi there, I need some advice. Met you at Ali Pali Sept 09. Bought “violet fields” yarn (a lurexy lilac/pink/pale green & blue, flecked with gold) and found it in my stash the other day! Would love to know what kind of “shawl” pattern you’d recommend I’d knit. Modestly experienced knitter. Will use circular needles, size 3.75 mm (or thereabouts).

    Curiously awaiting your response

    Kind Regards

    • Hi Victoria. Sounds like you have. Skein of Blue Heron Rayon Metallic If you head over to Ravelry there are quite a few 1 skein projects. If you would like to augment the yardage let me know and we can figure something out.

  8. Hi! I’m seeing “Pumpkin Pie – Copper Rayon Metallic” that looks interesting–do you still have that?

    • Bobbie. I don’t think I ever responded to this as I was in the States with a family emergency. Unfortunately I do not have this one. I have some blues left and a few mixed orangey colours if you’re interested!

  9. Hiya. I have about 8 skeins of blue heron rayon metallic left but unfortunately no pumpkin. I have a pumpkin gold shimmer sock I’ve dyed on the website http://www.debonnaireyarns.com!
