Kate Selene Yarn πŸ’–πŸŒˆ

Kate. Selene. Yarn.

Omg.

Gahhhhhhh! 😍😍😍😍😍 i am such a HUGE fan of Kate Selene @kate_selene & her indie hand dyed yarn, & have been following her on Instagram for years. Even before she started dying yarn. Kate is seriously the queen of mixing colours with her magic dye pots, & to have some of her squish in my collection, well i am just SO EXCITED!

i wish you could SMELL this yarn, yep smell it. Omg it smells soooooo beautiful. The moment i opened my red & white polka dot parcel (Kate’s signature style) i was engulfed with this soft fragrance. According to Kate’s website, it is a secret, so don’t even bother asking what her magic entoxicating smell is, but it is dreamy, & such a lovely touch. Even the yarns now being exposed on the shelves, out of their packets, i can still faintly smell their beautiful scent. Do not worry though, it is by no means offensive (sheep’s wool isn’t exactly pleasant smell naturally) & it is not overwhelming either, it is delicate & fresh.

Kate’s yarn doesn’t only smell good, but more importantly, it feels amazing. It is merino yarn, so it is super soft. i do not use much wool yarn, but this yarn is more than enough to convert me. It has the right amount of fluff, with still enough definition. I think it would work beautifully with any type of crochet, amigurumi included! πŸ‘Œ

I have taken so many photos, so i am just going to upload them all here, because this squish is too gorgeous not to share them all 😍 if you think this yarn is beautiful on your screen, well you are only getting a small fraction, a little teaser, of the mind blowing vibrancy & saturation, of this incredible yarn magic. Honestly.

If i had to pick a yarn that i could only crochet with for the rest of my life, i would pick Kate Selene Yarn, without hesitation, & i wouldn’t even mind. I actually wish that i could only use Kate Selene Yarn 🀭 it is beautiful. Don’t take my word for it though, order 1 skein (if you can just order one) & have squish (& a sniff) for yourself. Let me know what you think, you can come back here & thank me πŸ˜‰πŸŒˆ

Full disclosure: Kate has very kindly gifted me all the yarn in this blog post!! (i know right, she is a beautiful person). But she did not ask, or pay me to write this post. All opinions are honest & my own. I just LOVE Kate’s yarn, & if she hadn’t kindly gifted me the yarn, i would be buying it.

Thank you so much lovely Kate, i love what you do!!! You are a true artist 🌈 xxxx

    I feel the same way about Kate’s yarn. Her sense of colour is amazing. She is a natural. But it is not only that. The quality of her yarn is great too (sock, single, dk) and she is now doing Slub and Suri. And the smell…sooo good.

    Her 100/1000s rainbow collection is also one of my favourites. It is so easy to work with them. But she has other memorable colours (rainbow sherbet, rainbow unicorn, dusk, storm, pop fizzles in various colours, little pony collection trolls collection,.

    The rainbow collection is a good choice. But don’t discard her Club subscription. I have been receiving it for a while now and I love it.
