Kate. Selene. Yarn.
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! 👌
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 😉🌈
You can find Kate Selene here:
Be sure to go watch Kate’s CPC – Car Park Chat with Kate – on instagram too, you can find all her previous episodes saved in her highlights. You will see the gorgeous & lovely Kate herself, in her car (hence the name 😉) chatting & sharing her squish, & any news she has on colours & yarn. As well as her beautiful knitting too! Told you i was a huge fan 😍🤭
💖🌈 Love Nat xx
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
