Closed for Unwind Retreat - open again Mid-march!


Dark Harbour Yarn is run by me - Nikki Jones - with assistance from my family and friends. I'm based in stunning Wellington - where there is a lot of need for sensibly woolly items.

I've been dyeing yarn for my own use for about 15 years (just after I started knitting) and started this business in 2014.

I'm an accomplished knitter and pattern adapter, and am happy to discuss yarn suitability and ideas for patterns with you! It's important to me that you're going to be happy with your project - it's a big investment of time and money.
