Announcement   Welcome to WonderWoollens! I make GENUINE HANDMADE products.
Everything in my shop is ready to ship! I love fibre and I love colour so combining the two is my idea of heaven! I spin, dye, knit, crochet and braid (Kumihimo).

I only use the best quality fibres such as alpaca, merino, silk and Blue-faced Leicester, (a British breed of sheep) all of which are very wearable and 'next to skin' soft.

Most of my alpaca items are made from raw fleece from a healthy, happy herd of alpacas which I have visited on numerous occasions. Buying their fleece direct from the farm enables me to produce fine quality items at a reasonable price, as there is no 'middle man' involved. The added benefit of alpaca is that it contains no lanolin so it is suitable for people with sheep's wool and/or lanolin allergies.

All my items are created in our smoke-free, pet-free home.

I welcome custom orders, I would be very happy to discuss your requirements. Custom orders require a 50% deposit, with the balance paid when the item is completed.

GIFTS I am very happy to send purchases direct to a giftee, perhaps as a late present for a friend or family member and I can include a gift card and/or gift wrapping. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Thank you for looking.

About

I opened WonderWoollens to sell my handspun creations.

Having knitted and crocheted since I was about five years old, I added spinning to my skills about twenty years ago. I have two modern wheels which I use mainly for creating things to sell, as well as six other wheels, some antique and some awaiting restoration. I find spinning extremely relaxing and I love the process which turns a mass of raw fibre into useable yarn.

I love the way that handspun yarn adds more character to my items. I find working with natural fibres far more pleasing than commercial yarns and when I started dyeing my handspun yarn, I discovered that I could make truly 'OOAK' (one of a kind) products.

I built up a modest amount of stock for craft fairs and charity events and when I discovered that customers loved the uniqueness of my products and the high quality of the fibres which I use, I decided to open WonderWoollens here on Etsy.
