Spectrum Fibre

Spectrum Tweed

  • Fabulously hand dyed by Briony from her full-time garden dye studio in Brighton. Briony has a real talent for colour, and creating magical combinations which will add happiness to anyone's stash.

    We asked Briony to work her magic on traditional, time-tested bases which we really love to knit with. The result is 
    contemporary, eye-catching colourways for the modern knitter/crocheter on supremely wearable, high quality bases. Check out these colours in BFL High Twist too!

    This entire collection, along with its BFL-Twisted-Sister is designed so it could create one big epic neon fade, or a gorgeous 3-6 skein fade design (think Andrea Mowry). They are a perfect pick'n'mix for colour pop shawls (think any Stephen West)!

    Bluefaced Leicester is a lustrous English longwool. It makes a soft and strong yarn, and takes dye beautifully. This fantastic yarn is perfect for no-nylon socks, and everything else! Lustrous with beautiful drape, suitable for next-to-skin garments.

    Note: Skeins are not perfectly identical, if using more than one, consider alternating every few rows. Hand wash recommended.

  • About Spectrum Fibre

    Spectrum Fibre is run by Briony - an incredibly talented British indie dyer.

    Briony single-handedly creates these magical colour-ways from her garden based dye studio in Brighton.

    "I create small batch hand dyed, contemporary colourways for the modern knitter and crocheter. I enjoy combining contemporary colours with neon pops to create yarns that excite people.

      "My core colour palette is ‘modern candy minimal’ with an extensive range of pastels, neons and soft brights. I often add unique speckled details to add flavour to a coherent collection."

    Briony's success with Spectrum Fibre in 2016 meant that she was able to give up her long term career in the NHS to follow my dream of dyeing full time.
