Meet the maker Stephanie Thornton

I'm Steph, wife to my wonderful hubsta, mum to 2 fab daughters, and foster mum to 2 kitties. I grew up in the West Midlands, and now happily live near the coast in beautiful Cornwall.

I am absolutely addicted to hand-dyeing yarns, hand and machine knitting, and crochet, incorporating beads, ribbons, and buttons along the way.

The base yarns that I select to dye are all supersoft; I have sensitive eczema-prone skin, and only want to dye yarns that I would wear myself.

I love to create beautiful, useable items either with luxurious yarns such as cashmere and silk or more easycare yarns such as superwash wool and cotton. I only use my own designs and patterns for my items, and often feel inspired by nature, food, and the colours around me.

I love to make custom items to meet individual requirements, so if there's something handmade you've been wondering about buying, just ask!
