The word Yama is layered with meaning from different mythologies and languages..some rather dark, but in Japanese it means “Mountain"

Madeleine is a graphic designer turned indie yarn dyer living in Noordhoek, a laid-back coastal suburb of Cape Town (Table Mountain!) in South Africa. She draws most of her creative inspiration from her environment and is totally fascinated by “fynbos”, a unique kind of shrubland or heathland vegetation that makes up 80 per cent of the Cape Floral Kingdom.

Madeleine dyes small batches of unique yet very wearable colourways including semi-solids with lots of depth as well as richly layered variegated colours. Yarn is dyed, washed and rinsed using harvested rain water.

We are honored to be able to bring these gorgeous skeins of very special hand-dyed yarn to you.
