About

Luxury handspun and handdyed fibers for your knitting or feltart

As a child I loved to sit next to my grandmother, who sewed on her treadle sewing machine where I assemble pieces, ribbons and nice buttons which I transformed into the most beautiful dolls cloths (at least in my eyes: 0)), and from my aunt, who both crochet and knit, I learned the craft from scratch.

When I went to college back in the early eighties, I was infected by a spinning and fiber mad teacher who taught me EVERYTHING about wool, spinning and natural dyeing, an occupation that has lasted since, with a break of approx. 25 years when life demanded other priorities, if my kids should have clothes to wear.

Back in 2008, a good colleague came and asked me if I could help her to spin some dog wool, and this opened my eyes to the truly enormous progress that has been on the fiber area.
The Internet has given opportunities to test not just fibers from sheep, but musk ox wool, bison, cashmere and yak has come within reach along with bamboo, sea shell, milk and many more.

Most of the fibers used in my yarn, I get from small family farms mainly in England.

The more exotic fibers like silk, angora, cashmere, yak and mohair I get from World of Wool in England. WOW (abbreviation for World of Wool) is very aware of animal welfare and working environment, the places they have agreements with.

I receive usually the fibers in their natural colors and then they are subsequently dyed with non-toxic acid colors in my kitchen. The colour powder I purchase at the Danish company Granat. The colors are very light- and color genuine.

Also dyeing of the fibers have undergone a great change. It is now possible to dye in the most interesting and lasting color in my own kitchen, just by using citric acid or vinegar, which means I have endless possibilities when I make my yarn.
