UK Hand Dyed Yarn and Fibre

Welcome to Little Acorn Crafts. I am an Indie yarn and fibre dyer based in the UK and sell a range of hand dyed yarn and fibre for spinning and felting.    My love of a variety of fibre based crafts, which include spinning, dyeing, weaving, knitting and crochet, has led me to develop my dyeing and workshop business in my home studio based in Wiltshire.  My studio is  where my family and  friends will often find me gazing out of the windows watching the birds, squirrels and changing seasons (purely for colour inspiration, of course).  I usually have the company of my dog, Cotton, who spends most of his time watching out for the pesky squirrels who tease him on a regular basis. 

I also sell a range of haberdashery supplies, patterns and  knitting and crochet kits. Each kit comes with everything you need to complete your project. They also come in a range of colours and include the pattern, lining, crochet hook/knitting needles, yarn, and ribbon/chain/webbing for the handles. In addition to selling craft supplies I run tailored 1 to 1 or small group workshops from my studio and run larger workshops with my friend Sam under the guise of Fabulous Fibreistas.
