Petra is the indie dyer behind Black Elephant yarns. Petra was originally from Slovakia but has been based in Sheffield now for almost 10 years. She started her first blog - hladko obratko (knit purl) where she made knitting video's in Slovakian using all of the English speaking videos which she had learnt from. Not long after this, Petra discovered her love and talent for hand dying yarn and from there, Black Elephant was born.
Petra only uses mulesing free yarn which is ethically sourced.
With a stunning colour palette including speckles and semi-solids, you are sure to find perfect colour combinations and fades suitable for any size project.
