Kirsty Clarke's Profile
Hi, my name is Kirsty and I have been producing hand dyed yarns for sale for 5 years.
My yarns are largely 'one-off' or unique colourways though I do some repeatable colourways. I like to produce varying yarns based on an inspirational theme, recent themes have included Industrial, Rockpools & Spiced Berries. Each yarn produced on a theme will be numbered. At the moment I am working on producing layered colour effects and speckling or dappled effects by a combination of dip-dyeing and hand painting. The methods I use result in complex almost or semi- solid colourways, sometimes with a 'two-tone' effect.
I have been spinning for 4 years with a spindle and bought 2 wheels in 2011. I started dyeing yarns for my own use 7 years ago and have been knitting forever! I now have a second Etsy shop Woolworks Too where I sell some of my knits…
