Kits will be online for pre-purchase from 14 January 2021. These will be available in Double Knit (DK/Light Worsted #3) and 4ply (Sock #1) weight 100% pure cotton. Several colorways have been put together for your convenience. However, you are welcome to compile your own unique kit from the over 400 colors on offer.

About ColourSpun 100% Pure Cotton


ColourSpun is a South African brand, which we are justifiably very proud of for the following reasons:

  • ColourSpun yarn is created by hand; therefore, each skein is imbued with the artist’s energy and will have its own unique characteristics.
  • Cotton is the most used textile fiber in the world. It is a non-allergenic cellulose fiber that doesn’t irritate sensitive skin and is ideal for warmer weather.  
  • ColourSpun Pure Cotton Yarn is ring spun (a process that gives greater durability while maintaining softness, making it perfect for knitting and crochet) from the finest quality, locally produced, pure, natural cotton and colored by hand in the ColourSpun studio using a chemical free, earth-friendly process. All the dyes used are GOTS approved and have excellent wash-fast and light-fast properties.

Notes on Kits

  • Kits will be available to purchase online directly from ColourSpun.
  • All queries regarding availability, shipping etc., must be directed to Dana Biddle at ColourSpun.
  • There are 3 options available to purchase as an anchor/contrast color:
    • White
    • Natural
    • Grey
  • My personal anchor color preference is white. White has been used in the kits shown below. Substitute your preference when purchasing online.
  • Place your orders as soon as possible. Dana dyes to order and is hoping to ship the kits mid-February 2021 to ensure that you have them in time for the launch of the Crochet and Read Along. See below for more information or download the Introduction.

What is an anchor color? I like to use one color repeatedly to bring a cohesive look to a project. I call this an anchor color.

The picture below shows a sample in Soft Rainbow with white anchor color.

Complete Pattern

We have received a number of requests from people who would prefer to have access to the complete pattern and novel so that they can work at their own pace. To accommodate this request both the pattern and the novel will be available to purchase from about 1 March 2021.

You will be able to buy these through my online store and through Ravelry. The pattern will be US$4.99 and the novel US$5.99 for the eBook and US$9.99 for the paperback. Further information on how to purchase the pattern and book will be released closer to 1 March 2021. These prices are valid for the duration of the CAL.

I know that I speak for both Dana and Marie when I say how excited we are for this project. 

Thank you for your interest! We are so looking forward to launching this. 

Sending much love & light. Stay safe!
