ABOUT :
I am an artist in textiles : I paint the wild landscapes that surround me, the huge skies, sunsets, granite tors, rivers and distant sea. My paints are my hand spun, hand dyed, British rarebreed lambswool, silks and beautiful sustainable natural fibres. I hand knit unique sweaters and hats, and weave by hand on my traditional weaving looms to make one of a kind scarves, throws, cushions and accessories.

Unique, unrepeatable, original, wearable art.

Entirely handmade, slow artisan textiles. Unique hand knitted unisex sweaters and hats, handwoven scarves, cushions, and accessories made using handspun local British, rare breed, and heritage lambswool, mill ends of lambswool from traditional British wool mills and sustainable natural fibres.
No waste, handmade to last. And eventually biodegrade to replenish the earth.

Commissions accepted, please email me to discuss your favourite colours.

Handspun, dyed, hand knitted and handwoven pieces evoke the changing colours and moods of ancient Dartmoor. Slow artisan textiles handmade with a contemporary twist.

Celebrating British, heritage and rare breed lambswool and sustainable natural fibres. Moorland colours and textures, undyed and naturally dyed.

Individual one off pieces. Beautiful lambswool and natural fibres handspun on my spinning wheels, or British lambswool sourced from small independent mills, then handwoven on my floor loom or knitted by hand.

Handmade on Dartmoor to last... and eventually biodegrade to replenish the soil.

About WildMoor

On Etsy since 2018

Seen in TATLER magazine

I owned a Gallery in Zambia for many years, and looked for wide open spaces upon returning to the UK after half a lifetime in Africa. A cottage on Dartmoor overlooking the wild moor - with endless horizons across the river to the open sea - is the perfect backdrop and inspiration for a textile artist to express the changing colours, moods and textures of this ancient landscape. Slow textiles, handmade to last.

I create one of a kind pieces of wearable art. Handspun, dyed and handknitted sweaters and accessories, handwoven scarves, throws and cushions.

One off textiles handspun with British and rare breed lambswool and other beautiful natural fibres, handknitted or handwoven on my floor loom.

Rare breed and British lambswool with provenance from local conservation sheep farms, processed and spun into yarn on my spinning wheels, and beautiful lambswool sourced from small traditional wool mills.

Slow fashion, contemporary artisan heirlooms, entirely made by hand on Dartmoor.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

I may be able to make similar items to order if I have the fibres available, but because these are handspun, hand dyed and handwoven it may not be possible to recreate the same colours. We can discuss your preferences.

These handmade items take a long time to make, and depend on being able to source the same or similar raw materials. The time also depends on my handspinning and weaving commitments.

Commission orders will necessarily be more expensive than stock items, usually by 50%.

Thank you.

Sizing details

Other width sizes can be ordered, depending on the width of my loom. The length can be changed with no problem as long as I am able to source the raw materials to make it.

Longer and wider weavings use more materials and take more time, so will necessarily be more expensive. A shorter weaving will cost less.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Please tell me if this is a special gift, and I will gladly gift wrap it for you...

Wholesale availability

Please contact me if you would like to stock any of my items in your shop. These are handmade and individual pieces and not mass produced

Care instructions

Wool Washing Instructions:

Hand wash only in hand hot water with gentle soap or detergent, and without agitation. Allow it to soak, then gently lift out of the water. Place in similar temperature rinse water and soak again.

Sudden changes of temperature from hot to cold, and rubbing or agitation can cause the wool to felt or shrink.

Gently lift out of the rinse water, squeeze gently or run the gentle spin cycle in your washing machine (not the rinse cycle as too vigorous) to remove excess water. Do not wring, twist or put in the tumble dryer.

Hang to dry or dry flat away from direct heat. Steam or steam iron if necessary.
