This November, we welcome Birdhouse Fibres to Skein Sisters as our Sisters Spotlight of the month.
The yarn will be available on Saturday 7 November from 9.30am online and 10am in our store in Dulwich Hill. Take a look below to start planning your projects.
Nicole Howell, the founder and owner of Birdhouse Fibres, is an indie dyer based in Sydney's Northern Beaches. Nicole finds inspiration in many places - food, wildlife and the beautiful surroundings of her home.
Nicole learned basic knitting as a child, picked it up again as an adult, and has been working on improving her skills every since. Sock knitting was her go-to for portable projects and long business trips and she always has a couple of pairs on her needles, although she also enjoys the satisfaction of producing a whole garment.
A diligent collector of hand-dyed yarns for many years, Nicole then decided she'd like to develop her own dyeing style, and so Birdhouse Fibres was born! She enjoys every part of the dyeing process and is so looking forward to continuing creating yarns that bring pleasure to knitters and crocheters everywhere!
