Ruth's Profile

About

I am a native of N.Ireland, but have been living and weaving between Spain and Ireland for over 13 years. I studied woven textiles at Winchester School of Art, UK and have lived and worked in Ireland, UK, Japan and now Spain.
I have a grown-up job that pays the mortgage, and I live in Barcelona with my husband, 4 year old daughter, baby son - and of course - my very old hand loom.

Materials

Natural Fibres (Fibers!) Pure wool, silk, linen, cotton and silky viscose rayon...These yarns are beautiful to work with and lucious against the skin. Throw in a hint of lycra or lurex...a few well placed semi-precious beads and velvet ribbon - and you really stand out!

Things to look at

Flickr & my blog track the process of my dyeing, weaving, winding, felting, finishing - People don't always want to know how things were made, but if you're offering something handmade it only seems fair that someone might want to understand how it came to life.

Some information on Shipping and Returns

I've updated my shipping and returns information to be very complete but long and dull:
Bottom line - I try to ship everything within 48 hours of payment and everything by registered post. Lots more detailed information now lives in "Shop Policies" - However, if this is far too long and boring to be bothered reading, and you have any questions on shipping or returns, then please feel free to contact me.
