‘Blue Ringed Octopus’
Knitted Poof

I have lived in Red Hill for around 25 years. We have owned Alpacas for most of those years. I love their luxurious fibre which I spin, dye and knit.

This is my passion. I’m never without a pair of knitting needles, creating and experimenting.
The inspiration for the latest range of poofs / foot stools is under the sea – coral and sea creatures. I gain inspiration from the environment, the fibre and colour.

The wrist warmers are hand spun, hand dyed and knitted from the alpacas in my paddock.
The queen sized bed quilt is alpaca, from many different yarns, hand knitted. Each hexagon knitted in one piece and lightly stuffed. Every piece is unique.
