Hand Spun Yarns.

and hand made knits

KATHRYN DICKINSON

My tutor said I was a curious artist…

I am influenced by nature’s flora and fauna, from its birth in spring to its decay in autumn – so many colours and textures. I also like to recycle and up-cycle wherever possible. I enjoy all Fine Art and Art & Crafts.

Hand spinning is fun and makes me think and smile and wonder… what if…

GOODS

Bespoke yarns with which to knit, crochet and weave.

I began spinning wool 5 years ago – I enjoy spinning wool, whether it’s fine cobweb 2-ply or thick and thin singles.

Take a look at my hand made garments in my Etsy shop…

MY STORY

Spinning wheels and rare breed yarn

my own spinning…

I currently own 3 working spinning wheels, a further one requires some attention (came free with a 1960s spinning stool), and very small delicate one which was taken apart for packing purposes bought in an antique shop In Thiers, France a few years ago.

I came across my favourite yarn by reading an article about knitting in the Guardian newspaper in 2011. The article detailed a hat pattern using wool from Colinette Yarns in mid Powys. I loved the look of the yarn, bought a skein, and made the hat!

‘Elizabeth’, my first spinning wheel, is now temporarily retired and looked wonderful at Christmas time with the fairy lights around the wheel. I can use this wheel to teach students to spin wool – contact me for more details.

Client Testimonials

Beautifully soft, unique yarn with blended rich colours. A pleasure to work with.

I fell in love with this jumper whilst Kathryn was knitting it…I loved the colour combination. Once it was finished, I tried it on and didn’t know what to say. It fitted me perfectly – I didn’t want to take it off.

The jumper is warm and soft to wear; it will keep me toasty warm in winter.
