Great wool can’t be hurried. We carefully nurture and thoughtfully hand dye then unhurriedly  and naturally dry to ensure every moment you have together is quintessentially woolly bliss.

**Important notice due to redevelopment of our site orders will not be fulfilled as stock levels cannot be guaranteed  We are sorry for any disappointment  Please check back soon to see our new season stock**

a big smile from George



George has perhaps an unusual background with one thought in the world of science and the other in the arts - having degree level qualifications in environment, chemistry and performing arts. He has been a chemistry teacher, ran a theatre company and am an artist, writer and musician.

George needed a vehicle to express both my scientific and artistic curiosities and dying won out over making fireworks! He was interested in the chemistry of dying, thought to himself "I'll to have a go at that" and now can't stop.

The woolly world has been a revelation to George - we have met so many lovely and talented people as we've travelled the country to wool shows.

You can hear more from George at KnitBritish, ShinyBees and Caithness Crafts.

Louise has enjoyed making things since she was a child, teaching herself to herself to knit through the Ladybird book of knitting. Louise keeps things chugging along at Yarn Garden being responsible for the website, orders and shows.

Louise works very closely with Katya Frankel so that the yarns we suggest are right for the pattern.

Being an avid reader Louise enjoys choosing really good craft books for you.
