I began Twisted Yarns by designing shawls and cowls and making crochet kits. I then discovered hand dyed yarn and loved how much nicer it was to use than commercial yarn. I now dye yarn from sock weight to chunky and I try to use British wool wherever possible. I also have a few yarn boxes, from a mystery yarn subscription box to themed ones. I have also recently learnt to spin, and I now dye fibre and make hand spun yarn. I use British fibre, which has been sourced from a small mill.
As stitch markers are so essential to crochet and knitting, I have a selection of different themed markers available. I use lobster clasps as I find them much easier to use than other types of clasps.
