From fleece to fabulous

It all began with a fleece and a chance encounter on a Sunday afternoon....

Now, three spinning wheels, multiple fleeces and a multicoloured kitchen later, I'm taking the plunge and becoming the starving artisan I always wanted to be!

I have always been a creative type and have turned my hand to most forms of textiles, from embroidery and cross stitch through to knitting and patchwork. A thank you gift from a pupil of a fleece from his pet sheep sent me down to a local spinning group, and here, with a lot of laughter and encouragement, I found my passion.

The process of creating something from scratch has long since fascinated me, and in Mistress Wiseheart I aim to do just that, following the yarn from the back of the sheep to the finished article.

The majority of yarns used in finished products are 100% British yarn, and often come from small flocks, sheared by my friendly neighbourhood shearer. Where necessary I will use other yarns, but ensure that they are sourced and produced ethically.
