    Independent-minded hand dyer from the English heartland

    Hi there! I'm Frances, I create hand dyed yarn from my workshop in deepest Leicestershire. I have a background in art, and was getting frustrated with some of the limited colours in hand dyed yarn, so I started dyeing my own. With some knowledge of colour, and a lot of impatient experiments, I've built up my own palette and ways of dyeing. I try not to follow trends, but instead produce something beautiful, something useful and good to knit with, and something that excites the eye.

    I use primarily sock weight yarns, concentrating on blends that are fit for purpose and hold colour well. If you're going to spend hours knitting a sock, you don't want the heel to dissapear in one wear! I'm a knitter myself, so everything I do is tested, usually on my own feet...

    I also produce a few hand knitted items, usually lace. I grew up in Nottingham, which has an old established Lace Market, and I'm proud I can carry on the tradition of lace knitting in my region.

    Additional policies and FAQs
    I'm afraid I don't routinely do custom orders due to high demands on my time from regular dyeing, and the difficulty of reproducing exact skeins or colours.
