Shade: The Grey Area – dark grey/mauve with splashes of pink and blue, part of a collection inspired by the colours of the transgender flag.

This shade represents the grey area of gender occupied by people who identify as non-binary, agender/gender neutral or gender fluid. Non-binary people may identify with traits associated with both masculine and feminine genders, or neither. Non-binary people face exclusion and erasure of their gender, and are fighting for legal recognition of their identity in many countries (including the UK). But, there are simple ways of supporting non-binary people, for example by replacing gendered language like “ladies and gentlemen” with inclusive terms like “everyone”. This Stonewall article suggests more ways you can be an ally.

Our inspiration images are based on work by Sharon McCutcheon, a photographer specialising in LGBTQIA+ themes who kindly donates many images for free use.

Campaign for Wool Plump, round, squishy, firm, springy and endlessly versatile! DK is the classic knitters' yarn gauge, great for most types of projects but especially sweaters, and we’ve created a colour range with this in mind.

Spun from the only finest fleece that the Bluefaced Leicester sheep produces, is it the absolute best of British, and having been farmed, milled, spun and dyed in the UK it has a low transport footprint.

Bluefaced Leicester is a native British sheep breed. Its fleece has a subtle lustre, unique to the breed, which adds an exceptional depth of colour to our hand-dyed shades. Its long staple length makes it hard-wearing, and being a superwash yarn, it's easy to care for too.
