Hand Spun, Plant Dyed Yarns & Wool Workshops.
Based on a hill in rural Carmarthenshire, south west Wales UK, the products you find here are all made by hand in my studio and reflect my love of a homespun lifestyle.
Coming from a long line of creative women, seamstress’s, embroiderers and home makers, ‘nellie and eve’ is named after my grandmothers.
My ‘Wool from Wales’ Hand Spun Yarn collection uses locally sourced fleeces, some from the sheep that happily graze the fields surrounding my studio.
Fleece is washed & prepared by hand from its raw state to finished item. The production of each skein uses a traditional spinning wheel to spin the fibre into yarn.
The Super Chunky ‘Dreadlock Yarn collection uses wool from small holders that has been mill prepared in the UK. It’s hand spun and finished in my studio.
When colour is required I use plants to create natural tones for my dyed fibres and yarns, collected from the garden and hedgerows or from the pantry cupboard.
Hand spun, plant dyed or woven wool, each piece is hand crafted with care.
Local, sustainable, natural.
I run regular workshops and classes in crochet, super chunky knitting, wool spinning, plant dyeing and peg loom weaving and you can find me demonstrating my craft at events around the country.
