Woollenflower is a small natural-dye and textile studio, based in Glasgow’s east end and run by Australian-born horticulturist and craftsperson Julia Billings. “With a particular focus on producing yarn and threads for other craftspeople, I hope to facilitate the making of objects that are beautiful, comforting and long-lasting and to expand public perceptions on the range of shades that natural dyes yield,” Julie says. “I also produce periodic collections of knit accessories, made using a hand-operated vintage knitting machine, Scottish yarns in soft, rich and earthy colours and botanically inspired colorwork motifs, and pouches from wool fabrics reclaimed from worn-out garments, upholsterer’s waste and vintage lengths.” Note: Some kit listings contain clearly marked links to Ravelry.
