NEWSRipples Crafts has a new yarn base. It is called "Suilven" after the mountain which dominates the Assynt landscape, and is a mix of merino, silk and yak. It is a strong yarn with a beautiful sheen. You can find it here.
I am pleased to tell you that, once again, I have beautiful hand made wooden shawl pins in stock.
The next event which Ripples Crafts will be attending is the Highland Wool Festival in Dingwall in late May. Helen also appears regularly at local Made in Assynt markets in Lochinver.

Ripples Crafts is an independent yarn dyeing business based in the North West Highlands of Scotland. Helen Lockhart hand-dyes all the yarn herself, gathering her inspiration from the colours, landscapes and traditions surrounding her home in the crofting community of Assynt. The yarns are dyed in small batches and the colour combinations are many and varied, from multiple shades to simpler variations in colour. Helen loves her work, enjoying the creativity and thriving on the sense of connection with her customers, many of whom return time and time again to acquire hanks of yarn which are unique and individually dyed.
