Lactose Intolerant

‘Lactose Intolerant’ is our latest protest yarn and is our response to the dangerous rise of The Brexit Party and far-right politics in the UK.

A fuller discussion of this can be found on our blog.

£3 of every skein of ‘Lactose Intolerant’ sold will go to Hope Not Hate, a charity which aims to combat fascism in all its varying forms.

Each skein is dyed in a combination of milkshake/ice cream shades with slightly more vibrant pops of colour. It is designed to complement the colours used in its sister yarn, ‘Female Bodily Autonomy‘, which is hand painted with those words. Therefore, both yarns may comfortably sit well together in a project.

Please Note: We do not advocate the throwing of milkshakes or yarn at fascist politicians, both are far too good for such a waste.
