Hello welcome to hooks and dye.
My name is lucy. I am the person behind hooks and dye. Hooks and Dye was once named hooks & I as I used to crochet items on commission but I soon found that I wanted more, I wanted to craft and create wool from its source and move away from acrylic yarns. so I started saving up my money and slowly started looking in to 100% wools and also the high end of the yarn world of hand dyeing, and I enjoyed the process of learning how different fibres work and react to dye in different settings. then slowly again I started to get itchy feet just like a crafty magpie. I needed the next thing, to move up so the natural progression from there was to learn how to process the fleece straight from the animal and work through all the stages. To produce luxury and one of a kind pieces. I am also passionate about locally sourcing my fleeces. Here in Pembrokeshire in west Wales there are sheep just about in every field and lots of different breeds.
I have always been interested in art and I have always wanted to have a artistic direction in my life as a adult but I was always be bit lost as in to which was my medium, now I have found it and my medium is wool. so here you can find hand dyed yarns and luxury fibres, some hand spun yarns and also some locally sourced fibres that’s have been prepared, so will be dyed and some will be natural.
I hope you enjoy browsing through my website.
