Dyeing yarn allows me to indulge my love for both colour and yarn.
I have always been drawn to vivid colours and how they can lift moods and provide confidence to project to the outside world.
I hand dye a wide variety of colours, in small batches on different weights and fibres. However if there is a specific colour you are looking for please get in touch.
The North East of Scotland is a beautiful corner of the country with many mountains, beaches, castles and wide open spaces. This environment provides an ever changing colour palette and inspiration.
As I love the area the company name is based on an iconic rock formation in Portknockie on the Moray Firth coast near where I grew up.
Knitting has provided an opportunity to take time away from technology and bring some mindfulness to this every busy world.
