In the past 18 months I've learnt how to spin, dye and knit wool, in that order. And I'm now addicted. It's in my genes as Grandma was a founding member of the Taieri Spinners Club and my sister has always been involved in Creative Fibre.  I'm from a sheep farm near Balclutha where Dad ran Romney sheep on for forty years. 

I love over-dyeing Romney into vibrant solid colours and hand painting Merino Combed Top with protein dyes. I then combine these by spinning and plying to make unique yarns that are a joy to knit with.  I'm a beginner knitter but I'd rather spend the time spinning than knitting.

If you are interested in learning more about spinning please visit me in my studio to pick my brain. I wholly recommend spinning as a calming meditative hobby. Unlike me, you don't have to try and monetise it! I just can't help myself (still putting off a real job).
