Announcement    Hemingway & Hunt supply books, Nalbinding kits, Nalbinded items, and willow frame and creel baskets for wool.

COVID: We are now doing more than one PO run per week, as we're printing out our own postage labels, to make it safer for our local PO and ourselves... There may still be delays due to the unavoidable difficulties our POs face - but we are now able to post out a couple of times per week, to minimise this. Thank you ace customers and friends, for bearing with us so far. We appreciate your custom more than ever, during these difficult times. We will not be sending things tracked at this time, because we are not physically going into the PO. We have adjusted postal charges accordingly. During this time we will also not be following our usual policy of using recycled packaging where possible - all packaging is new for your own safety.

About HemingwayandHunt

Sales 283
On Etsy since 2018

One of Yorkshire's Last Great Wheel Spinners, Inkle Weavers and Purveyor of Yorkshire Rare Breeds Wool.

In 1984, I went into a craft shop in Halifax's 'Piece Hall' and bought a hand-spindle. Only 30 years later, to find out my direct ancestors, Smith and Dawson, had been clothiers, weaving "fancy woollens", and sold their handwoven pieces from that very place in the 1790s. So you could say it's in the blood! I spin, weave, and dye and Mr Hunt and I travel the UK doing Living History as 'The Luddites', demonstrating the Great Wheel and Portuguese Knitting and delivering talks and workshops on textile history.

I am one of the UK's handful of Great Wheel spinners, and I am a regular contributor to 'The Knitter' magazine, writer of 'River Ganseys' and contributor to the latest edition of the classic book 'The Old Hand-Knitters of the Dales'. I'm one of the Crafters in Residence at the Yorkshire Museum of Farming, Murton Park, near York.

Our ethos is to keep old crafts alive, whilst being as ethical and environmentally responsible as possible. I have practiced low impact (environmentally friendly) natural dyeing for over 30 years.
