Announcement   Mothy and the Squid specialises in rainbows, brightly coloured sock yarn and miniskeins. My name is Jillian and I am the resident indie dyer, inspired by natures beauty to create vibrant coloured premium quality yarn. I mission is to ensure each skein is a visual and tactile delight to knit or crochet with and produces bright beautiful finished objects.

Gorgeous yarn, I love the vibrant colours. The website is really brilliant. I'm like a child in a sweetie shop, I want it all. How this lady matches her yarn with nature's beauty is a sight to behold!!

About

Once upon a time there was a girl who loved rainbows and luxury yarn but she couldn't find exactly what she wanted so she became an indie dyer.

I rediscovered knitting after a long gap a few years ago and my needles haven't stopped clicking since. Unable to find the perfect rainbow on my favourite premium yarn base I went on to dye my own wool.

Before I knew it my hobby was out of hand and had become a small business helping support my family. My husband says I am not allowed to start spinning or he will come home from work one day and find the garden full if sheep. This fear is entirely justified!

I also run an after school knitting club at our local primary school as I believe knitting is a wonderful hobby for children to learn as it has many benefits. If you are interested to learn more about the project please read: www.gofundme.com/knitafterschool .
