Vinni's Colours

Vinni’s Colours is a yarn company based in Cape Town, South Africa. They specialise in hand dyed cotton and bamboo yarns with a palette of over 200 colours.

In 2004, Vinni Nielsen, started her business in South Africa. After 6 years she was able to move her rapidly expanding business into its current premises, which is two factory buildings in Cape Town. This success has had much to do with the dedicated help of a team of supportive staff (as well as faithful customers who love this unique South African product) who live within a stone’s throw of the factory. All processes are done by hand, from the dyeing to the balling and skeining, and the yarn is sun-dried in the factory forecourt.

The product
It is the wide range of colours, from soft pastels to deep, vibrant colours that makes our product perfect for the needs of the most artistic crafter. Vinni’s yarn is available in all the major yarn shops in South Africa and is loved by a growing number of clothing and interior designers. Many of these are entrepreneurs who are, in turn, employing many people who would otherwise have no work.
