About the yarn


All yarns are dyed with professional acid dyes for wash fast results.  I rinse all of our yarn until the water runs clear, however as with any hand dyed yarn it´s a good idea to hand wash items separately with cold water the first time just to be safe. 

I colour all the skeins in the same colourway together, please note that no two skeins are exactly alike.  Hand dyed yarn varies it the dye lots, please order enough to complete your project at one time.  In addition, to avoid puddling I recommend alternating skeins every two rows to minimize variations

I do my best to provide as accurate photography as possible, but since all devices are calibrated differently there are variations between monitors and devices.

Don't see the colorway/base combination you were looking for?  I’m always happy to discuss custom orders!  Please be aware, however that my ability to take custom orders can depend on my current dye schedule and show obligations.  For custom orders contact me and we can go from there! 


About Hespan

Hespan is a small independant dye online shop, on a tiny country called the Faroe Islands, in the Atlantic ocean.

my hand dyeing journey started with my daughter wanting at rainbow sweater. But I couldn't find a yarn that matched my idea and my daughters wishes.

I come from a creative home and have a historie with painting and the mindset of "if I can make it myself i will" Anyway long story short, I ended up falling in love with dying yarn and knitting. the sweater became a dress and many yards of colorful yarn. 

I sincerely hope you find the yarn that complete your idea. the thought of combining the creativity from hand dyed yarn and the knitting makes a piece of art that you can wear or put to youse of some sort, is pure magic in my opinion.
