M.O.E post 18 – Yarn Angels

yarnangels

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.

Yarn Angels produce hand dyed yarn with tender loving care from their 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.

One more for luck

We are delighted to announce one more exhibitor for Yarningham.

Yarn Angels are a new Birmingham based dye duo of Lizzie and Fiona.  The produce mostly one of a kind, hand dyed skeins on a wide range of fibres including merino, silk, alpaca and bamboo.

We are pleased as punch that Yarningham will be Yarn Angels’ first fibre festival.  We had hoped to find a dye company based here in our home town of Birmingham when we started putting Yarningham together.  It turned out to be a long search to find someone, but I think you will agree it was worth the wait. Their skeins look wonderful.  I can’t wait to get my hands on some.

And with only 6 weeks to go until Yarningham, I won’t have to wait too long!
