For many years I traded as Thredfairy selling hand dyed threads, fabrics and fibres using procion dyes. As time went on I found I was becoming increasingly uncomfortable with the quantities of multi-coloured liquids I was tipping down the drain and felt that there had to be a better way of conducting my business so I began to investigate the use of natural dyes.

This has not only transformed the nature and character of the products I sell but has in fact revolutionised my own textile art practice and the whole business of ecology and sustainabitlity is now what informs my work
