One of the first independent dyers I found online, way back when, was Lavender Lune. I loved scrolling through the beautiful colorways on their website. It was a few years before I bought any yarn and it did not disappoint in person, at all.
Lavender Lune is dyed by Sam, a homeschooling mom of four, in Minnesota. Sam has an amazing eye for color and you should definitely peruse her colorways!
Lavender Lune yarn is dyed on many bases, including…
Suri Alpaca (Lace – 74% Suri/26% Silk)
80/20 Fingering (Merino/Nylon)
BFL 150 (Fingering – 100% Bluefaced Leicester)
MCN (Fingering – 80% Merino/10% Nylon/10% Cashmere)
Glitter (Fingering – 75% Merino/20% Nylon/5% Stellina)
Cotton Fluff (Fingering – 38% Alpaca/37% Pima/25% Merino/25% Nylon)
Single Ply Linen (90% Merino/10% Linen/Flax)
DK (75% Merino/25% Nylon)
Sabino Sport (80% Targhee/20% Cormo Non Superwash)
Worsted (100% Merino)
Sam always has yarn available on her website. And she’s been adding so many amazing bases! Be sure to follow here on social media to see what she’s dyeing up!
Ease of Shopping
The Lavender Lune website is very easy to navigate. Sam even has kits available for popular patterns, as well as yarn clubs to subscribe to!
The shipping rates are very reasonable when ordering directly from Sam.
Though I only have one skein of Lavender Lune yarn in my stash, I will be buying more. I love the yarns Sam offers online, especially her non-superwash options. Her colors are just lovely! Be sure to look to see what this dyer offers in the future!
