Hand dyed yarn, Knitting patterns, handdyed fibre
Gullrock Fibres is a plant dye studio on the borderlands of Devon and Cornwall, UK, run by Sinead who is passionate about combining her manufacturing engineering background with her love of materials, colour and texture. The plants are gathered from local city parks, Dartmoor and nearby beaches where there are plenty of windfalls and enthusiastic patches of planting where a little foraging is acceptable. She has set up her own dye garden and shed this year in her previous wasteland of a back garden and is thrilled to finally have a space other than her kitchen to work in. She also uses dried flowers, plants and roots from friends' allotments or local suppliers. Her yarn bases are grown and spun in the UK with a new base from John Arbon coming soon for those cosy winter sweaters. All bases are nylon-free and non-superwash as it is important that her yarns retain their character and undergo as little processing as possible. Sinead is thrilled to be part of a fibre community who care about their environment, the materials they use and support each other in the sharing of knowledge and skills. She hopes you enjoy knitting with her fibres and produce treasured pieces which will be worn for years to come.
