Mingled Yarn


Welcome to Mingled Yarn's website, dedicated to supplying interesting, unusual and beautiful yarns for weaving, knitting and other textile arts and crafts. I'm Sally Parker, a budding weaver and textile artist working in the heart of the West Dorset countryside, and Mingled Yarn is born out of my own passion for weaving yarns.

At the heart of Mingled Yarn's business is a concern for people and the environment, so issues such as fair trade, ecologically-sensitive production and local sourcing are important to me. I aim to supply yarns that not only look good and feel good, but do good, too!

Especially for weavers

On the 'Product' pages you will find the technical information you need to weave and knit with the yarns, together with 'Weaving Tips' based on my own experiences in using them. The pictures in the Gallery also provide ideas and inspiration – I'm a fairly novice weaver so the weaving isn't too complicated, but it does show that, with really fabulous yarns, you can get great results with even simple weave structures.

Buying from Mingled Yarn

You can buy our yarns either from the weaving studio in West Dorset (click on Weaving Studio for details) or online. I aim to despatch orders quickly and offer FREE P&P on all standard orders (click on Buying From Us for details), so the price you see is the price you pay - no nasty surprises at the checkout!

I hope you enjoy browsing the website – your feedback and ideas are very welcome!
