Living and working in Italy, Valentina Consalvi is the talented indie dyer behind Snail yarn. The colours she loves are timeless colours inspired from nature, “I want my yarn to be used for projects that will last for a lifetime and will pass the fashion trends.” Merino singles are squishy and soft single ply yarn perfect for scarves and jumpers.
All skeins come from the same dye bath, however due to nature of hand dyeing, no two skeins are exactly the same.
It is recommended to alternate between two skeins for big projects.
