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.

This fabulously plump yarn knits up quickly on big needles for those fun, frivolous, instant-gratification projects. In mammoth 200g skeins, you can make a whole scarf or a snuggly hat and mittens set with a single skein.

The wool fibres have been superwash treated to prevent felting, but as it's a single ply yarn we recommend gentle washing.

Caring for neons

Neon dyes are not as colour-fast as regular dyes. To keep them looking their brightest and best we recommend hand washing in cold water (even if the yarn itself is machine washable). Dry away from direct sunlight.
