Natural British wool yarns handspun in Devon, England for your knitting and weaving pleasure.

I moved to Devon after years of city living and found myself surrounded by green rolling fields covered in sheep. I began to learn that Exeter's history was woven into the fabric of the English wool trade. By the early 1700's with a strong community of spinners and weavers plus excellent pasture land and access to the sea, wool had virtually built the town. I started visiting local mills and became fascinated with the magical process of turning a gorgeous bag of fluff into a purposeful and versatile thread.

I soon I taught myself to spin using a plethora of online tutorials from fibre-loving spinners around the world. Already with a preference for sustainable work/life choices and inspired by the local wool heritage, I began to work exclusively with British and local wool, working with the individual charm and character of a wide range of sheep breeds.

The more I spun, the more I loved it and before long I had more wool than I could ever knit up myself. So I moved to a bigger place turned the conservatory into a studio and started selling my precious bundles of wool at local craft markets and here online for you.

My greatest wish is for you to enjoy crafting and using my yarns (and hot water bottles) as much as I do making them. X
