Shop Announcement:

Hello and a warm welcome to my reopened shop after a break of a few years - I'm excited about the new direction I'm taking my sheep's fleece. I have been dyeing and spinning for a number of years and began weaving some time ago. I have a rigid heddle loom and love the process of colour combining when I'm making my scarves and cowls.
Having a love of many different crafts I also work with copper and silver and fashion pins and brooches for scarves and shawls - I make resin beads and incorporate them into my designs, as well as using gemstones and lampwork beads.

Please understand there might be delays in the postal service due to the covid19 outbreak.

Description

The entire process from sheep to scarf is conducted on my Shetland croft.

Our own flock of pure Shetland sheep are hand sheared, the fleece is then washed and space dyed in harmonious colourways. Once dry the fleece is colour blended using my drum carder before being fractal spun on my spinning wheel. I then weave the resulting yarn on a rigid heddle loom to create the finished scarf.

The inspiration for my designs comes from the beautiful natural surroundings of Shetland.

Length 65" (165cm)
Width 3.5" (9cm)

Inspiration

My flock of sheep have fantastic fleece and in a way I feel its honouring them to take their 'cut offs' and make something useful and beautiful. I've been knitting since I was a child, but its only since I began keeping sheep that my real adventures with fleece began. Now I dye, card, spin, weave, felt, crochet, oh and knit of course.
