I’m a textile designer/maker,weaver and wool merchant working with farmers in the AONB’S of Arnside/Silverdale and Forest of Bowland to promote the use of wool…..a wonderful versatile readily available natural resource! The farms are high nature value,low intensity and I work closely with the farmers and the small spinning mill in the Peak District where the fleeces are spun into yarn.The mill uses minimal processing to impact as little as possible on the environment and to give me beautiful soft, rustic textured yarn to knit,weave or felt.The wool is mostly left in the natural ‘sheepy’ colours.

I produce a wide range of textiles to wear or for the home including hats,bags,wall hangings and throws.I like to incorporate vintage costume  jewellery,driftwood pieces and sea glass in my work.
