HELLO & WELCOME!!!

Pirate Purl Yarns are hand dyed by Katrina Kellett in small batches in her Newcastle studio. 

Katrina uses acid dyes with food-grade citric acid as the setting agent.  All the dye is exhausted from the dye pots, so there are no nasties going into drains and it is possible to reuse the water in the dyebath multiple times.

Once the dye process is complete, the yarn takes a short wool wash soak to ensure all the citric acid is removed.   The yarns have not had any 'superwash' treatment and must be washed gently by hand in cold water as they are feltable.

Pirate Purl Yarns is super proud to be a licensee of the Australian Fibre Collective and all our Corriedale yarn is certified by the AFC as 100% traceable Australian Grown and Manufactured Fibre.

When she is not dyeing, Katrina enjoys hunting for vintage treasure and drinking single malt whisky!
