About Woolrush Handspun Yarns

Woolrush Handspun Yarns

Hand spinner, dyer, designer, knitter, fibrecrafts

I have always been fascinated by colour, texture and fibre. I learnt to spin,knit and crochet at a very young age, spinning on a wheel that my father had made. I am inspired by the natural world around me - the colours and changing seasons, shapes and shadows, textures. I blend different coloured fibres to achieve the shades I want. I have developed the techniques used in Dorset buttons to include not only new designs, but also jewellery. I enjoy needle felting, freeform and other fibre related crafts,along with stained glass,when time permits.My other interests are music, equestrian sport ,animals and reading.
