I've always loved wool, now I have lots to play with!

I live with my family on a smallholding on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon, England, and we keep pigs, turkeys, chickens, ducks and a small flock of sheep.

The prime reason for getting some sheep was to keep the pasture down, - it came as a pleasant surprise that there was wool too!

Over the years we have learnt how to wash, dye and card the wool, and then to spin, felt, needlefelt and knit and crochet.

I enjoy the sheep as much as their wool; they all have different characters and come up to me for pats, and I often have a flock following me as I walk the fields, and for us, it is important that the animals have a good life.

I dye the wool using commercial and natural dyes, and the wool from our coloured sheep is beautiful just as it is.

Everything in my shop is made from wool from our own flock. As my adventures in wool continue, more items will be brought out for sale.

Thank you for visiting Colour It Green. We try to make our items from materials from our own smallholding, or locally sourced. Ours is a smoke free home. I love making things, and relish the idea of some of my items being enjoyed in other homes.
