About

Grabbing Life by the Balls...of Yarn!

Ocean life shouldn't be choking on plastics and I'd really rather the people on the planet didn't starve either. Drinking water shouldn't kill you and rivers shouldn't catch on fire. People should get paid a fair wage for the hours they work. We should all remember that every one has stuff to muddle through; and be a little kinder.

I love coastlines, I'm not a fan of extreme weather and I have this really awesome kid so the state of our environment and how we treat each other is on my mind a lot. I know that my actions alone can't make all the difference, but Kinked & Twisted Yarn Arts is my contribution to a better place to live.

This is my logic ladder: If you make an item by hand you value it more, the more you value an item, the less likely it is to end up just thrown away. When someone else makes you an item by hand all of the above holds true, plus you feel a little bit loved every time you wear it, making you just a little nicer all day long.

There's a cascading affect of goodness that starts with a little skein of yarn. I really like that.

I hand-dye all my yarns with bio-degradable, non toxic dyes. To the very best of my knowledge all of my mill spun yarns come from mills that use fair labor practices and the wool is ethically sourced from happy sheep.

Quality, sustainable products shouldn't be a luxury item that only a few can have access to. Kinked & Twisted Yarn Arts was created in the belief that the fiber arts should be everywhere, everyday and accessible to everyone.

We hope to continue the tradition of fiber crafting with a fun and modern twist.
