About Us

Whether you're a knitter or a crocheter, your creations deserve a beautiful & unique hand dyed yarn. We think if you are going to spend hours lovingly creating an item you deserve the very best.


In the months leading up to opening MadebyPenguins I spent a great deal of time testing samples from many different suppliers. We chose the one that provided the best quality. Our yarns are truly beautiful in their natural state and even more beautiful when dyed, they often shimmer and change colour depending on the light.


All MadebyPenguins yarns are hand-dyed by me, Lisa-Lou in my Hampshire studio. Every hank is hand-dyed using a variety of techniques including painting they are always created with your creations in mind! We only use Proffesional Acid Dyes as I believe these to be the very best available. All yarns are treated differently depending on their composition to ensure the colour remains as steadfast as possible when you wash them.


I pride myself on offering a friendly and personal service, our motto is happy customers makes happy Penguins and we mean it - if ever you are not happy please reach out to me as we want you to be happy with your purchase. if you need anything at all whilst you are here; pattern advice, a question about the yarn, have a colouway in mind you would like to try, or anything else, just drop me a message using the contact page & I will do my very best to help.
