Snail Yarn at Kaleidoscope
I met Valentina Consalvi a while ago at Edinburgh yarn festival, and I’m so pleased to have her beautiful yarns in our shop! I hope you’ll like them too.
Valentina lives in Ariccia, near Rome. Snail yarn started in 2013. She learnt to dye starting with food colours, then experimenting with natural dyes and acid dyes, she finally I opened her shop in August 2014.
Using only Merino wool from South America or Falkland to avoid the mulesing issues, Bluefaced Leicester bred in UK, and other high quality fibres, all specifically spun for hand knit. She strongly believes in protecting the environment and nature.
“I want my yarn to be used for projects that will last for a lifetime and will pass the fashion trends”.
