Crafty bird is run by Robyn here’s what she has to say about her business. I hand make faux fur pom poms. I source super fluffy faux fur from reputable suppliers in the UK, and I make faux fur pom poms that people can attach to their own creations – hats, scarves, shawls and anything else they fancy! I also make pom pom keyrings that people put on their keys or bags. In order to ensure I make sustainable products, I use the offcuts of faux fur to make smaller pom poms that I put in lucky dip bags that people also enjoy buying. I also design crochet hat patterns, and I offer the patterns for sale as well as crochet hat kits – which include yarn, a pattern and a pom pom. The Crafty Bird is on Etsy.

Sinead has this to say about her little business. I dye yarn and fibre with plants foraged around my home in Devon or with plant extracts which are responsibly sourced. I only use non-superwash nylon-free yarn and fibre and my goal is to use materials which are produced or processed as close to home as possible. You can find out more about Gullrock Fibres on their website.
Marina is a lover of British wool and produces some lovely colourways. Here is what she has to say. I hand-dye yarn and fibre,
focusing on British fibres and working closely with local farms and small
businesses. My current main yarn ranges are spun from fibre sourced
within 25 miles of where I live (in Bath). Mendip (4-Ply and DK) is slightly
rustic, woollen-spun yarn dyed in rich semi-solid colours. Caia Baby
Alpaca is a very light 4-ply, and is dyed in variegated jewel tones that
complement the subtle sheen of the soft yarn. As well as my repeatable
colours, I dye small batches using foraged and saved plant dyes, and
selling hand-spun yarn and blended fibre batts.
Nellie & The Yarn Fairy
Here is what Helen has to tell you about her business. We (my alter ego and I) are a tiny Indy dye venture creating dye pools for small batches of beautiful yarn. NYF evolved in 2019 when reacquainted with my well used childhood book, The Elves and the Shoemaker. I was taught to knit at a very young age by my Mum and Nan. After loosing my mother, hand knitting and the art of dyeing yarn became a cathartic way of physically keeping the link with family skills passed down and new ones alive and thriving. However, it soon became apparent that I cannot keep every skein of yarn I dye and if I just happen to have squishable, natural yarn it transforms overnight somehow! So much like the Elves, my fairy gets the credit for creating magical dye pools, and rehoming sees more yarn appear! My logo has many features I hold dear and represents the cycle of the dye process surrounded by some of my story. Check out her facebook page.
