soleilcrochet's Shop Announcement

Welcome to Soleil Crochet!

Some of my crocheted pieces are original designs, and being handmade, no two are exactly identical.

In the books of quotations, which I self-published back in the '80's and 90's, the calligraphy and art is all my own work. A few of the Celtic patterns in "Friendship" and "Love" are hand-drawn copies of traditional designs. All of these books are now out of print.

You'll find a variety of other Vintage books and items in my shop along with the crocheted items.

"Soleil" is the French word for "Sun", and it rhymes with "crochet". I am fascinated with light, in all of its aspects, and find all the colours of the rainbow beautiful. This is reflected in the shades of yarn which I crochet with. I love to crochet, and use many types of yarn, but all of them from natural sources as opposed to synthetic ones, and organically produced wherever possible.

Organic wool, cotton, hemp, and other natural fibers are kinder to the environment in general. They are produced without toxic pesticides, herbicides, and other harsh chemicals used in growing, washing and preparing the fibers which we end up crocheting, knitting and sewing with, and wearing.

I hope you enjoy your visit to Soleil Crochet!
