When sourcing my yarns I not only look at the quality but I am also careful to choose ethical British suppliers.

Not too long ago, two slightly yarn obsessed friends, Liz and Fiona, with a love of all things magical took their penchant for beautiful hand dyed skeins to another level to create Yarn Angels Ltd. We produce hand dyed yarn with tender loving care from our home. We love experimenting with colour and fibres and are continuously learning along our journey. Most of our skeins are OOAK but occasionally we have repeatable colours in our shop. The Angels work well together due to Fiona's passion for bright, contrasting colours and Liz's love of graduating and complimenting colours.
