Welcome to my little corner of Etsy, full of soft and colourful knits in natural, luxury yarns!
I make handknitted accessories in natural luxury yarns.
I was taught to knit at about age nine by my Mum and after making a couple of jumpers promptly forgot all about it in favour of many other kinds of arts and crafts. My interest was rekindled as a teenager when my Mum pointed out that I could make myself the black mohair jumper I coveted. One trip to the wool shop later and I was (re)hooked!
My designs are mainly inspired by colour, especially the lovely tones achieved by hand dyeing. I love simple, wearable designs which don’t date and I draw inspiration from the natural world and from my travels, particularly in the US where I lived for ten years.
I try to use natural yarns and love the touch of luxury afforded by cashmere, silk and alpaca. I also try to use organic and fairtrade yarns whenever possible so that you can feel good about your purchases.
I'm Clare Kennedy and Ruby Star Knits is born of my love of knitting and all things yarn related.
