About Rooky Hugs & Colours from Swaledale

  Rooky Hugs & Colours from Swaledale

I love making hand hooked rugs and I create hessian/burlap rug designs. I also produce my own hand spun rug yarns and hold a range of exclusive rug hooks specifically for yarn hooking work.

I live and work in the 'Yorkshire Dales' of Northern England - gorgeous colours, lovely landscapes and wonderful people! These give me my foundation from which I work along with the support of my two great 'adult' children and my ever present companion, my collie-X dog.
Alongside creating rugs and rug designs I also hand spin, weave, knit, crochet and I am also employed as a Production Manager at a local cross-stitch kit company.
I have always had a creative soul and followed this through by becoming a 'mature' student, 2012-14, and studied Textile Design with Weave at Bradford College of Art.
My rug work started in 2015, having promised myself I wouldn't start yet another creative pathway!! This is where I realised, after 15 years of hand spinning, what it was that I loved to spin for.... making rugs/wallhangings. I now create yarns specifically for use in hooked rug making.....with a few hanks of the finer stuff! ....just because! :-)
