Eco-Friendly, sustainable, handmade, one-offs. Knitting, crochet & macrame.
Colour My Dreams started after many years of sitting in front of a computer and feeling the need to get back to something more tangible. Finding a bag of yarn, knitting needles, crochet hooks and macrame cord in my loft rekindled my love of macrame, knitting and crochet from my youth and I decided to give them another try. It was like riding a bike - you never forget, but you have to complete a few rides around the block to get your balance again and regain confidence in your physical abilities.
I've always been passionate about being as earth friendly as I can and I've continued that ethos within Colour My Dreams. My products are only ever made from sustainably sourced, natural and pure materials. I don't use acrylic yarn at all. Only pure wool and sustainable cotton. I only source my materials from suppliers who share this standard. My prices reflect this as I'm afraid quality comes at a price. However, if you share my feelings about protecting our environment in every way we can, then you'll understand why I choose to work in this way. I believe in one-off, quality pieces, not pumping out cheap and cheerful throwaway items.
Whether it be my skills as a designer or a crafter, I've got a lot of years of knowledge and practise to draw on. I'm loving every minute of rediscovering some old techniques that have found a new generation of crafters who love creating in these relaxing and satisfying ways.
I hope you enjoy my designs and products and join me on this little adventure. Please contact me for any commissions.
Lots of love and colour,
