Welsh Mountain Plant Dyed Yarns & Wool Workshops

Naturally dyeing and hand spinning yarn, Nellie and Eve is based on a mountain in West Wales UK, the products you find here are all made by hand at my garden studio & 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.



Hand Dyed British Wool Yarn

Dyed using plants collected from the garden, hedgerow or pantry.  Inspired by the landscape of the mountain, the colours created are muted, natural tones & reflect the changing seasons.




Hand Spun Yarn

Locally sourced fleeces, some from the sheep that happily graze the fields surrounding my studio are used to create unique yarns.



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.




Super Chunky ‘Dreadlock’ Yarn

This collection uses British wool which has been hand spun & finished at my studio. It’s great yarn for chunky blankets.


Plant dyed or hand spun each piece is crafted with care.

Local, sustainable, natural
