Yarns & Crafts

Symfonie hand dyed yarn is now available at our Yarns & Crafts Shop in Buckie.
We have Terra, a gorgeous 4ply with 75% Superwash Merino and 25% Nylon.
It is available in variegated and solid colours.
Ideal for luxurious socks or any other finer yarn projects. 🧶😊 

“Symfonie Yarns is a proud division of KnitPro International, a family-owned leader in needlecraft tools and accessories with roots in Jaipur and Delhi (Noida), India. Our journey began with a group of dedicated knitters and crocheters within our team who immersed themselves in the art of hand-dyeing yarn. Their unwavering commitment and passion led to the dawn of Symfonie. It is not just a brand but a dreamchild for us.

Symfonie symbolizes the perfect blend of love, dedication, and a commitment to supplying artists worldwide with top-quality, affordably-priced, hand-dyed colourful yarns.”

Our products

At Moray Reach Out, we take pride in crafting every single MRO product with care, right from the very beginning to the final touches. What makes it even more special is that our amazing trainees, along with our dedicated staff and volunteers, are the creative minds and hands behind it all.

Our team has a knack for upcycling pallet wood into unique and bespoke items for your garden and home. It's not just about making stuff; it's about giving new life to materials and making something beautiful in the process.

And let's not forget our fantastic Art Yarn! We start from scratch, from shearing the wool, to teasing it, and finally spinning it into the loveliest yarn. The best part? We use Shetland Sheep fleece from our very own flock and support other local farmers too. It's all about creating something special from the heart. 🌟

A very special moment for Matthew - he is hanking the wool from his very first spin.
It was washed, teased, carded, spun, plyed and hanked all by the man himself 👏😍😍
