Sylvan Tiger is an independent hand dyer based in Yorkshire, England, creating luxury yarn and fibre using natural dyes.

I use wool sourced from British suppliers and where possible from British sheep, processed and spun in Britain. I use natural dyes mostly in extract form which gives better repeatability of colourways and allows me to dye all year-round. Every once in a while I’ll have ‘Limited Editions’ dyed with material I’ve carefully harvested myself from my garden or local environment.

My inspiration for colours and combinations often comes from my local landscapes of Yorkshire, the North York Moors, Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. I particularly enjoy exploiting the natural PH sensitivities of the natural dyes to create gentle variations in colour.

My yarns can be used for a variety of work including knitting, crochet, spinning, and felting.

You can purchase my yarn and fibre from my Etsy shop:
