Something changed

Well one night we went to sleep and the next day our world was completely different and I have to admit, I still can't quite believe it. Lazykate Textiles is mainly built around teaching and passing on skills that are very important to me so when we were not able to do that anymore, I […]

Little things to help you spin

Over the years during Spinning Workshops, I found that breaking up the process into separate sections can help the fledgling spinner grasp each part of the process.  Let's face it, spinning is a skill and takes a some co-ordination so everything I can do to help make it easier, I will. Sometimes I will treadle […]

Dyer's Palette Box Club

I'm so excited about this new venture, the Dyer's Palette Box Club. It's something I've been talking about for absolutely ages (ask Ovis Yarns who has had her ear chewed off a few times).

Don't get ready - get started!

For many years I've followed Felicia Lo from Sweet Georgia Yarns.  She started off dyeing when I did, around 2005 and went on to scale the heights while I dawdled through!  It's so exciting to find someone who is on your wavelength and follow their journey.

Why we need Neutrals in Hand-Dyed Yarn

Faced with a wall of bright hand-dyed yarn with colours that pop, deep and rich purples and blues, cheery yellows and reds, pinks, pinks in every shade and saturation.  Solids, semis and variegated, speckles and spots these days colours can actually make our mouths start watering and we can only feel pity for those who […]
