Purple Sprouting


Paula is the yarn lover and dyer behind Purple Sprouting. Originally from England, Paula has lived in the Netherlands and Scotland and now has made New Zealand home. Paula says, “At Purple Sprouting we create hand dyed yarns in unique colorways that we hope will satisfy your speckled, variegated and semi-solid yarn needs. Yarns that are a pleasure to work with. Yarns that we want to knit with ourselves. Our yarns are hand dyed in small batches, using acid and fiber reactive dyes, in our dyeing studio located on the outskirts of Hamilton (Kirikiriroa), New Zealand.”
