Made In Devon By Nell Brown

Wonderwool Wales 27th and 28th April 2024

Spindernella’s hand spun yarns are made from local fleeces wherever possible. I know the farms where my fleeces come from (and the farmers). Their healthy and well cared for sheep and alpacas produce beautiful wool that is a joy to work with.

Hand carded fibres

Spindernella uses local sheep fleece and alpaca where possible, together with recycled sari silk to create unique blends of hand carded fibres, for spinning or felting. British Blue-Faced Leicester, Shetland, Lleyn or Merino fleeces are also used together with British alpacas and wherever possible, ethical silks. Great care is taken to create wonderful colour combinations to encourage your own imagination and creativity.

About me

I am Nell, and I am a one-person endeavour, working from my front room, with an understanding husband!

Spinning started off being my de-stressor, but rapidly became far more than just a hobby. I can play with the creation of colour mixes and fibre combinations to product batts and yarns which are unique. I am committed to using local fleeces where I can and recycled fibres when possible.

Knowing the farms and the farmers where my fleeces come from, I am assured that their healthy and well cared for sheep and alpacas product beautiful wool. That is what I can bring to the yarns that I produce. Enjoy!

If you’re ever in Newton Abbot, Devon, you are welcome to stop by my Studio at 1 Knowles Hill Road. Please do ring first to make sure I am at home rather than have a wasted journey.
