About Weku Yarn

Q: How did you come up with your name Weku Yarn?
A: Weku means family in Ga. We were on a walk and wanted to name ourselves Family Yarn and our Dad came up with the translation!

Q: What’s your favourite colour to dye?
A: Lydia loves Daa Nee (Always). It wasn’t what we planned but came out so well! Hannah loves Eewo (Sleep). I love the mix of colours and was the first colourway we came up with.

Q: What made you decide to start dying wool?
A: Lydia is an amazing knitter and has been supporting hand dyed yarn businesses for a long time. We felt we could join forces and could bring in my love of colour. We wanted to do something where we could highlight the amazing colours from West Africa which is our inspiration!
