Hi! I’m Jane, yarn dyer and owner of Hedgerow Yarns.
I’ve always had a lifelong fascination with yarn and have been knitting and crocheting since I was a small child. It was this fascination that led me to my passion for hand dyed yarns and eventually to me experimenting with dyeing yarn.
I started dyeing in 2015 after relocating to North Staffordshire from a busy London life. I’m now busier than ever before with my new dyeing hobby that very quickly turned into a small business.
Initially, after moving I combined yarn dyeing with my other obsession - gardening - and worked at a local garden centre.
I now dye yarn in small, often one of a kind batches at home in my little kitchen. I use several different techniques to dye, which include hand painting, speckling and kettle dyeing. I love experimenting with colours and take a lot of inspiration from nature and plants. Creating one of a kind single batch yarn is still my favourite way to dye and my passion, with no notes, no plan, just a dye pot and some dyes.
Thank you ever so much for popping by!
