Welcome – Introduction!

Hello! I’m Leigh: plier of wool, herder of children, and drinker of (possibly too much) coffee. I’m having a long blog-break at the moment, but please browse the archive of weekly posts about all things beautiful and/or quirky. Between musings about my own wool-weaving (and how ridiculously excited I can get about the arrival of …

Three-colour snood

The year started with a custom, three-colour, order in mustard yellow, charcoal, and green. This is the first snood I’ve made in three colours, and I was delighted with how it turned out – super thick and even warmer, and only 50g heavier! You can order this one by visiting its page on Etsy, or …

But not long after I discovered it, I discovered it had been discontinued, so these fleecy snoods are seriously limited edition! They are available in seven colours (all named …

New photos for the shop

Two of my lovely friends, Andrea and Lou, agreed to model some of my snoods, so you can see what they look like on real people! We had a hilarious time, having lugged a large sack (of snoods) through the woods, wondering just how suspect we looked! The weather was kind to us, Andrea and …

QR Code

I have a QR code! Scanning this will take you to my etsy shop… I know these are a common sight now, but I am stupidly proud of having one of my own! If you don’t have a QR scanner, this is where it takes you: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/WildbrookWoollies :o)  

Labels!

My labels have arrived! I’m very pleased with these, and am happy to recommend Woven Labels UK, the company who made them for me. Now all I have to do is sew them all in…  

Introduction

Hello! I’m Leigh, a coffee drinker, child-herder, and maker of snoods. (A snood is like a scarf, joined at the ends, to make a wrap-around neck warmer.) I am also a lover of art and craft in general, and as there is so much wonderful stuff out there… it felt like time to start a blog. So, …
