ABout us

Hand-dyed wool

We hand-prepare fleece direct from British farmers by skirting and scouring the wonderful variety of fleeces available. Some we sell as natural fleece, but we also love to hand-dye with felt-makers in mind. This can then be bought as separated locks, dyed fleece or carded into our felt-making batts.

Small giftware range available in Studio

At the West Kilbride studio we have a small giftware range, all made by myself. This range includes hand-made cards, brooches, bag tags, coasters, small pictures and lovely silk paper luminaries.

Hand-dyed silk

I love to dye silk fibres and fabrics, both new and vintage. We normally carry a range of hand-dyed and natural silk top, lap, hankies, caps, brick, noils, filature, de-gummed cocoons, mulberry cocoons, eri cocoons, threads, yarns and various weights and textures of fabrics. These are all great for adding texture to felt-making, spinning and embroidery.

Hand dyed silk

I sat last night opening your parcel and even though it was things I bought it was still like opening a mystery box. Each item is truly beautiful.

Nicola Banner

The colours and textures are fabulous, loads of ideas going round in my head.

Janet Sims

The kit is absolutely beautiful, I am really looking forward to doing it.
