Skein Queen – Selkino


Skein Queen is a small independent artisan yarn dying business run by Debbie Orr. Debbie hand dyes her yarn in her studio in Berkshire, we are very lucky to be her only UK stockist and have two ranges of her beautiful hand dyed yarn. 

Selkino is a range of rich, beautiful and hearty colours inspired by Debbies surroundings in Berkshire such as Rose Cottages, Abandoned Airbases and The River Thames which led to these amazing colourways. With 30% Silk, Selkino is super soft and has great stitch definition. As a single ply its a yarn to be reserved for Shawls, Cowls and other low abrasion projects. 

Weight: 4ply / Fingering 

Fibre: 70% Merino Wool / 30% Silk

Skein: Approx. 100g = 400m (437 yards)

Care: Handwash in lukewarm water



As with all hand-dyed yarns colour shades can vary within and between dye lots, this is what makes each skein uniquely beautiful.  Please be sure to order enough yarn to complete your project to reduce the chance of differences between your skeins.  To ensure random colour distribution, work from two skeins at once, alternating every few rows.

At YAK we try to ensure that our photos represent colours as accurately as possible, but please be aware that these can vary depending on your computer monitor settings.
