About IsleInspiredYarn

On Etsy since 2017

Naturally dyed yarn from UK sheep breeds, inspired by the Islands, and my love of Fair Isle knitting! Hand spun and commercially spun.

Why Isle Inspired? I was lucky enough to visit Shetland and Fair Isle in 2016 and fell in love with the landscape, the way of life, and the affinity for crafts. My passion for traditional Fair Isle knitting led me to using natural dyes to achieve the colour combinations I wanted. Natural dyes naturally complement each other!

I am also a spinner and weaver, and have been spinning yarn for nearly 30 years now - taught by my mum who has been spinning, weaving and dyeing for as long as I can remember! I have a passion for British sheep breeds, and will only source fibre grown in Britain. I also have a great interest in sustainability and post my products using recycled/recyclable plastic. I also produce my own ball bands using recycled brown paper, secured with plastic free paper tape.

I've opened a Facebook page to help me stay in touch and get my yarns out there into the wild!
