Lizette Venter's Profile
I make hand spun wool yarn from scratch - I love dying my own fibers and incorporating different textures into my yarns. I also design original and quirky knitting patterns and do some felt work too. I find inspiration in my surroundings, and I enjoy expressing all the facets of my moods and personality in color, shape and texture.
I had a wild, free childhood in South Africa, and you will see a tribal edge in some of my designs. In others you will see reflections of the soft misty Scottish landscapes, which is now my home.
When I'm not surrounding myself with woolly things, I'm usually outdoors, looking for sunshine, fresh air and inspiration. Mostly sunshine...
