Welcome to Spinspired


\

Spinspired is a very small business run by me and my husband.

I have been a knitter for 54 years, having been taught by my granny when I was three years old. I have been spinning for slightly less time (about 35 years) and have always enjoyed knitting with yarn that I have made myself. Like most spinners that I know, I spin more yarn than I can ever knit up myself and so Spinspired was born.

Over the last few years my husband and I have been going to craft fairs and wool fairs initially selling hand spun wool and hand knitted products. We have gradually expanded the range of products we offer to include hand washed and carded fleece, unique knitting patterns, hand turned yarn bowls and hand crafted spinning and weaving equipment, including bespoke tapestry frames and peg looms. Our ethos is to enable and encourage those who are new to textile crafts to ‘have a go’, and for existing crafters to try something new. We believe in producing good quality basic equipment at reasonable prices in order to make textile crafts accessible and affordable. We enjoy demonstrating spinning and weaving techniques while we are at shows and are always willing to give help and advice whenever possible.

A question we are constantly being asked is “do you have a website?” Until quite recently the answer has been “no, but we will be setting one up soon”. ‘Soon’ has now arrived and, with great trepidation, I have embarked on joining the world wide web. I can knit anything you want but am a complete novice at website publishing, so please be patient and WATCH THIS SPACE!
