Additional Information

I handweave luxury scarves using a range of handlooms with carefully sourced British Wool and other natural fibres e.g. linen, banana. I am a member of the Weavers, Spinners and Dyers Guild and the Campaign for Wool.  I hold a small amount of stock and take commissions and orders, in specific colours, wools, sizes, fringing, etc.  You can have a genuinely one off piece made for you.  Perfect to co-ordinate for different occasions, from weddings to everyday workwear.  A handwoven scarf, made for you, can transform an item of clothing as well as become a talking point! I am really passionate about all the beautiful wool we produce here in the UK and am proud to be a partner with the Campaign for Wool. 

There are very few sheep on the islands and no local wool so I work with some small UK suppliers including Hooligan Yarns who have a small flock of rescued sheep. Each yarn comes from a specific named sheep. Let me help you choose your perfect item.

I do orders in alternative fibres such as cotton and alpaca for those who can’t wear wool. I also work with luxury fyberspates yarn in blue faced Leicester and silk - beautiful shimmery yarn full of drape.

Please come and see me in my studio on St. Agnes or get in touch to create something specially for you  - made to measure in the exact shade you wish.
