In 2018 Perth Festival of Yarn established the tradition of reaching out to a vendor who was unable to be present at our show that year and ask them to work with us to create the Official Commemorative Skein. Past businesses who have done us this honour include Stranded Dyeworks, Fine Fish Yarns, and Dye Candy.
The Events Industry will take years to recover from the impact of Covid-19 and this year we came upon the idea of reaching out to ten independent yarn dyers who are based in Scotland to put together a collection of mini skeins with the wish to you all of “Haste Ye Back;” a Scottish phrase meaning “Return Soon.”
Each of our collaborative dyers has taken inspiration from something that speaks to their own heart about contemporary Scotland. The mini skeins are all 20g (85m) on a 75% Non Mulesing Superwash Merino 25% Nylon fingering weight / 4ply base. Every individual colorway has been created exclusively for this collection and are as follows from left to right:

Priced at £44.00 the Haste Ye Back Collection is now open for pre-orders, will close on 31 July, with estimated shipping by 1 September. The collection will be shipped from the UK which may incur customs and VAT charges in some countries.
