3rd Select Sunday....Introducing Rita

This week I'd like to introduce Rita.
We are both lucky to live in a beautiful 
coastal part of Scotland, but as you can see
Rita is even closer to the sea than me....
it's right at the bottom of her garden.

Rita HELPS me out big style at Hope Jacare's
new adventure back into the world
of dying / felt making and creative textiles.
She helps with many different things but she
loves to spin.

I can not tell you how exciting it is when Rita goes home with
a big fluffy batt of carded hand dyed fibres
and comes back with a wonderful yarn.
As Jacob would say - "Epic"

You will find Rita's yarns make an appearance
in a lot of our luxury creativity packs
and luxury felt making packs.

I can also let you into a wee secret about Rita
she has alot of spinning wheels!
I think it's a bit of an

Thanks to John her husband for the fabulous photo's
of spinning wheel in situ !


  1. What a gorgeous photo of the spinning wheel with the sea in the background, what a lovely spot to live, and those yarns look beautiful, I love the colours.

  2. What a brilliant photo, Claire. I love those finished yarns, what gorgeous colours. Can't wait to see what you turn them into it, I know whatever it is it'll be beautiful.
    Glad you had a good weekend.
