About selvage

selvage

I live in Fife, Scotland where I design and knit handmade gifts and homeware, inspired by the landscape and traditional patterns.

I learned to knit with my Granny when I was about five or six, she loved to knit Fair Isle tank tops for my sister and me, and passed on the skills to us both. The family home was always full of beautiful yarns to experiment with. I'm lucky now to have a dedicated studio space, with loads of natural light, and can fill the shelves with all the colours that inspire me. I have had great fun for the last couple of years growing and producing my own dyes to add to the colour range.

It’s important for me to use locally produced materials, and the yarn I use comes for the most part from a Scottish mill that has been producing yarn for over 200 years, from Shetland flocks. I started the business at the beginning of an financial downturn so ideas of social and economic sustainability were at the forefront of my mind. There is real comfort and reassurance to be found in age old traditions that have been passed down the generations. I think a lot of people feel the same way and I hope that continues, it can only be good for the UK economy. I hope my love of tradition and British materials shows through in the work.
