Hello and thank you for dropping by. All my yarns and textiles are hand-spun from local island fleeces, especially the native seaweed-eating North Ronaldsay rare breed. I use natural colours and hand dye my yarns. I knit, weave and felt unique pieces, inspired by the beautiful island I live on. Thank you for visiting. Simone x

Ebb Tide Wallhanging
Ebb Tide Wallhanging
In this piece I was searching to replicate the richness of my maritime palette. What I ended up with was a window or a mirror from which emerges a wave in its border because the sea, like the knitted stitches and the felting of the wool, know only their own boundaries. A deeply colourful and tactile hanging that speaks of movement.

Graffiti Umbrella – Knitted
Graffiti Umbrella – Knitted
If you are in Orkney this item can be seen and purchased at The Waterfront Gallery, Stromness. I'm quite excited about adding my knitted umbrella to my textiles shop. My inspiration came from American textile designer Kelly Griffith, thank you Kelly. I trawled the second-hand shops in search of the right umbrella. Eventually I found it - rather sad, unloved and languishing in a corner. I soon got rid of it's rather worn black covering and re-clothed it in its brand new hand-spun coat. What a transformation!
