Little One Woman indie hand spun yarn business in Bristol.

I am Stephanie Male and I run Woollen Wytch, a little indie handspun yarn and dying business in the centre of Bristol.⠀

It all started at University, Spinning Yarn for a project called Generation lost, continuing after graduating in my spare time. Soon friends found out about my granny-ish hobby and were asking me to teach them to spin wool. And so Woollen Wytch began.

I love keeping my hands busy, making things and spinning yarn, but I’m always left with more yarn than projects. I started Woollen Wytch to destash my mountains of skeins and share my love for a dying craft.

If you’re a crafty sort like me and want to pick up a new hobby or two, I’m here to help your obsession.⠀Check out my kits available in the shop to get you started.

All products are proudly created in the UK, with a focus on sustainability.

Frequently asked questions
How accurate are your yarn colours to your website?

I try my best to make Woollen Wytch photos as accurate as possible but every screen displays colour slightly differently, so we cannot guarantee complete accuracy. Hand-dyed yarns vary from one batch to the next as well, so there will always be some variation between the photo and each individual skein.

Why do my skeins not 'match' each other?

As with all processes done by hand, no two hand-dyed skeins can ever be absolutely identical, so we strongly recommend striping your yarn in when using more than one skein in a project. When using any of our hand-dyed yarns work two rows from one skein and then two rows from your second skein, carrying the yarn not in use up the side of your

How should I care for my knitted items?

Hand wash in lukewarm water with a mild detergent, rinse in lukewarm water, lay flat to dry.

Custom and personalised orders

Most colour bleeding is caused by excess dye molecules which will rinse out.

First, rinse your project a few times in clean cold water (not warm or hot water). Some colour bleeding may happen when you first wash your yarn, particularly if you have yarn with intense colours, so it is best to wash your items separately. You may want to avoid using light coloured yarn with more intense coloured yarns until you have tested for colour bleeding by washing your skein first.

Custom and personalised orders

Yes and no… Yes, Woollen Wytch yarns are made in a smoke-free home. And unfortunately no, they are not 100% pet-free. My yarns are dyed from at my home in Bristol with two troublesome kittens, Mogget and Mouse. While all the yarns are stored away from the felines, occasionally a pesky whisker or two may get attached to the skein. If you’re allergic to Cats, let me know before ordering and I’ll do my best to kick them out the room when spinning or dyeing.
