Updates

New range of hand knitted ear warmer headbands being made - a range of yarns and colours available. Aran and Scandinavian patterns - similar to my hats. Fleece lined. I’m also working on seasonal Scandinavian patterns - reindeers, xmas trees & snowflakes.

About

Headwear and accessories hand made from wool, flowers and seashells.

Hi! I'm Rachel and welcome to fleeceandflower. I have been a keen knitter for many years. Taught by my mother, we knitted through my teens and twenties - to the backdrop of my father grumbling about " I can't concentrate with the constant clickety click of needles / knitting is just organised fidgeting ... etc " The needles became rather dormant when the kids came along ( and cheap supermarket fleeces didn't hitch!) and I then went back into teaching.
I got back into it because I simply didn't like the sweaters on the high street - some of them had silly flappy bits and didn't do up - which is no use whatsoever when you're on playground duty in the teeth of Easterly winds coming off Dartmoor! Love making the hats - a real chance to explore different patterns and styles. Lining them with micro fleece made them so snug. And then I started pressing flowers and setting them in resin to make jewellery - something I used to do 3 decades ago!
This culminated in my first Craft
Fayre in November 2016.
I am constantly adding to my Etsy range - the knitwear being the current area of work. Many of the items and designs can be custom made and adapted. Please feel free to contact me!
I will be doing a lot more work on the jewellery , once there are flowers to press !
