Turner Rowe Yarn Art
Having been a knitter since I was 5 years old, spinning my own yarn was the next logical step!
I buy raw fleece from farmers, wash it (do you know how much sheep smell!), process it, dye it process it some more, blend it and spin it!
I use sheep fleece from a variety of breeds, including Merino, Gotland, Dorset and many more. I also use fleece from goats, Llama and Alpaca. In addition, I love to include silk, sparkly stuff, cotton, tencel...you get the idea!
I love to dye my own fibre and yarn. I have a lot of fun mixing dyes and creating new effects.
I love to knit! I use mix and match hand-spun for my free-form designs. I also write my own patterns on occasion!
The design on the left was a fun project with dyed Teeswater and Wensleydale locks.
I usually have four or five projects on the go at the same time!
