Inspired by Mother Nature and the many colours of crystals and minerals, we create botanically dyed yarn and wool products for felting and weaving. Our skeins are dyed in small batches and range from semi-solid to variegated and custom sweater batches.
At Hook & Brush Designs we strive to use British produced yarn that is 100% wool with no nylon or superwash. At the moment, we are working with Lleyn, Dorset Horn, Shetland, Blue Faced Leicester, Jacobs, Wensleydale, Whitefaced Woodland, Shropshire, Kent Romney and Southdown. We also have sustainably sourced non superwash Merino.
We grow all our dye plants at home in our garden in Cheshire and a larger garden plot in North Wales. We also enjoy foraging locally for materials and use kitchen scraps and natural dye extracts. Our packaging is plastic free - we recycle boxes where possible or provide a recyclable alternative. Our labels and stickers are also hand made at home to help reduce our carbon footprint.
A new edition for 2021 are the handmade yarn tools – nostepinnes, spindles and spinning yarn holders - hand turned by Nat’s Dad using reclaimed wood and hand finished by Nat with pyrography, hand painted flowers and eco varnish.
