Hyena in Petticoats is a one-woman dye studio run by Leah Chapman in Adelaide, South Australia. 

My focus is on providing vibrant, excellent quality hand dyed yarns, tools and materials for modern makers of all persuasions. My passion is for all things made by hand, the meditative nature of manual work, preserving skills and techniques that have been handed down through generations, and working outside mass production and cheap consumer goods. 

Making something from scratch - learning a skill, following a pattern or improvising your own, putting age old skills and brain power into a project takes time and consideration. Taking such time, effort and care deserves quality materials. Materials that in turn have been crafted with the utmost quality and care. 

Makers make things because they have to. Because their fingers won't lie still. Because they wake in the middle of the night to nut out the details of a new design. Because what they make is considered, beautiful, useful. 

I hope you enjoy your yarn. I can't wait to see what you make.
