About Blue Fern Yarns.
Hey, I am Shannon!
I am the owner, dyer, designer, knitter and crocheter behind Blue Fern Yarns.
Blue Fern Yarns started in Autumn 2019 and was created around a full time job within Property Management. It was my way of relaxing and getting my mind of the busy work day.
I have always been into crafting and have turned my hand to a few different crafts over the years.
Crocheting was where the yarn crafting started for me in 2015.
In 2018, I went to my first yarn show and I knew I had to give it a go. The process of transforming undyed yarn into something beautiful has been very therapeutic for me. There is nothing more satisfying than watching the colours move and combine to create something new and beautiful.
During the first lockdown in 2020, I learnt to knit, I started off with a simple cowl from Tin Can Knits and since then I have not been able to stop knitting, even designed a few patterns myself.
Blue Fern Yarns is often inspired by nature, including plants and scenery.
All yarn is dyed from my home in Norwich, Norfolk in the UK which I share with my finance Tom and cat Bennett.
Here I am wearing my shawl I designed using hand dyed yarns. These were not my yarns but it was the first time I used them.
