Spotlight on ......
Helen is an indie dyer from the north living in east London. The Wool Kitchen is run out of her ... yep....kitchen, where she cooks up a colourful storm of yarn! Wool craft for Helen is about beautiful fibres, ethical yarn and colour, which make knitting a real joy - She says, enjoy every stitch.
Helen is proud to have created the brand Woolly Chic that supports British sheep farmers and the wool industry in the UK. She loves the fact that she knows the wool has come from happy sheep. Helen says "I love the feel and properties of wool and feel passionate about supporting British farmers and fair-trade farming across the world. It is lovely to create crochet and knitting patterns using yarn that came from sheep that graze on my family's farm."
Helen is now also stocking fair trade 100% organic cotton that supports small farmers from India and Tanzania.
