Knit with Bliss...
I started Folklore Yarns after teaching myself how to dye fibres. It was the perfect marriage between my background in painting and my passion for knitting and fibre art. The shop name came about from my other major interest- mythology and folklore.
I create out of my home on evenings and weekends- during the week I can be found at the reference desk of our local library, or singing songs and reading picture books in the storytime room. Full time Library Assistant and part time Dyer, for now at least.
My inspiration comes from many places- the books I read, the places I visit, the vibrant colours of my pet parrots' plumage (we live with five of them. Life is noisy). I'm so happy to share my yarns with you, and hope you enjoy the colours and textures while you knit, just as much as I enjoyed creating them. Wishing you Blissful Knitting!
I graduated with a degree in visual arts but realized that painting yarn suited me better than painting canvasses. I can often be found with my sidekick Phoenix the Sun Conure perched shoulder-top when the dye pots are put away.
