Welcome to Wooldancer.
I begin with a memory or a story, select colour & fibre to suit then arrange all the elements & let the instinctive act of spinning guide the outcome. I work by pushing my own technical boundaries when forming the yarn. There is a practiced skill yes, yet there is always an element of magic involved!

Unique, textural, & tactile, my handspun yarns are made of next to skin soft luxury fibres, often incorporating innovative techniques & ecclectic, non-traditional materials.

Handspun yarn offers an experience of warmth unlike millspun yarn. Quite simply, it has been made from the heart & hands.

Wondering what to do with Art Yarn?
Drape the skein around your shoulders & let the threads do the talking!
Make a scarf, hat, jewelry or cushion with it .. Knit, crochet or weave Your story into the thread.
Enjoy the experience.y
