ColourWorks is a textile business situated in one of Lancaster’s old yards. We supply yarns and scarves hand dyed with natural dyes, and knitted items produced on domestic knitting machines in our small workshop.
We are an environmentally friendly and ethical company, who create unique products. An important strand of what we do is creating colour ranges of various types of yarns and scarves using natural dyes, without the intensive use of toxic chemicals; showing that textiles can be produced with minimal impact on the planet.
Through each of our products, ColourWorks endeavours to bring colour, nature and joy into the lives of others, to share our love of textiles and patterns - offering people the chance to own and care for original, unique items.
