Knitting, crochet and generally being creative have been important to me since I was a child.
A career in Occupational Therapy reinforced and sustained my belief in the value of purposeful and creative activity and so the dream of Gorgeous Yarns began….
I wanted somewhere where customers could buy quality, natural and hand dyed yarns which made precious creative time even more special.
A change in personal circumstances meant that in 2014 Gorgeous Yarns could become a reality as a web shop and later an Etsy shop.
Gorgeous Yarns is evolving and I have an increasing focus on our own bran yarns – Purely Gorgeous, undyed natural luxury yarns and Naturally Gorgeous, hand dyed natural dye yarns.
I hand dye our yarns at home and have recently begun to grow dye plants to use for our Naturally Gorgeous range. To find out more, have a look at our YouTube channel here.
