Superhero Genes on One Farm Yarn

Superhero Genes are extra special colourways. The names for these colours come from my amazing friend Scully, and are inspired by her brother Adam who died in 2019. Scully and her mum have asked that money raised from this yarn goes to Jeans for Genes Day.

Jeans for Genes Day is the annual fundraising campaign for Genetic Disorders UK, the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by a genetic disorder. Monies raised on Jeans for Genes Day fund the work of the charity and provide grants to organisations for projects that aim to transform the lives of children with genetic disorders. Right now charities like these need more support than ever.

We’ll be donating 50% of the purchase price of these yarns to Genetic Disorders UK. The remaining 50% covers the yarn costs, VAT, tax and dye costs. In turn that means we can make more of these yarns available and hopefully raise more money for this charity.

We've dyed these six colours on our One Farm Yarn base - a glorious blend of BFL and North Country Mule which come from a farm just a few miles away. As a pure wool this blend is perfect for garments and many accessories, however won't stand up well as a sock yarn.
