Current yarn collection
Of a Hoswick Sea
A collection of my own yarn, hand-spun and hand-dyed with natural indigo here in Hoswick.
With these special skeins of yarn I pay homage to the changing moods of the sea in the Hos-wick (wick comes vik, the norse name for bay), by dipping in natural indigo.
I have chosen some interesting fibres for this collection. You'll find some skeins in lofty Shetland and another related, ancient breed—North Ronaldsay. There's also some squashy merino blended with cashmere, and other yarns spun with blue faced Leicester, silk, mohair, angora, and even some linen.
