Your Local Yarn Shop :)

I am a Forty-something Work at Home Mum, and I used to handknit Longies/Shorts and soakers to be used over reusable/cloth nappies when my children were at home with me (hence the name Babylonglegs)

Now they are both at school, I dye lots of yummy yarns and fibres in a purpose built studio attatched to the family home.

All my yarns and fibres have been tried and tested in my own knitting and spinning, so I can sell them to you with the utmost confidence in their quality. I love to do custom dyeing, so please just send me a message if you'd like something specially dyed for you.

I treasure my family life and my boys come first in everything. I couldn’t be who I am with out them all there supporting me from the sidelines. Running such a labour intensive business from home and also keeping up with all the housework is always a challenge, but I manage it most days!

I have always purposefully kept Babylonglegs small enough so I can be a successful Mother and Significant Other as well as Fibre Artiste……

Welcome to my little corner of Etsy :)

I hope you find *lots* of yummy things here to tempt you :)

I love to do custom dyeing, whether it be one of my own colourways, or a custom creation dreamed up by a customer :)

A piece of fabric is always my best inspiration for colour matching, especially if it is to go with a special outfit. I can work from photographs though, but I’ll need plenty of them, and taken in different lights if possible. I also like to talk to a customer about their likes and dislikes of particular colours, and seeing a picture of the person is good too, so I can see their skin tone, hair and eye colour.

These things are all very helpful, as I really prefer getting things right first time!

Most of my current custom dyeing is done for existing customers, people I know, so it’s easy to get it right, as I know what they like! An open mind is essential when asking me to custom dye, as you might love a colour, but it might not entirely suit you in the shade you initially desire. Or the colours you choose might not go together too well. Trusting my artistic judgement is much appreciated ;)

If you'd like a custom dye, please just contact me and we can start a discussion!
