The Finest
Hand 
Dyes

by Wonky Weaver

The Start of Wonky Weaver

Wonky Weaver was founded by our passion for textiles and fabrics, alongside our research interests in the historical use of local materials , wool and natural dyes in Wales which led to a desire to learn and develop the art of weaving and dyeing and bring to life traditional  crafts in Wales.  With much hard work, we have evolved Wonky Weaver into importing and distributing fantastic products from all over the world, including AVL Looms, Harrisville Designs, Louet, Glimakra, Dreaming Robots and more recently the beautiful carding machines from Brother carders to supply the UK and European markets.

 

We have carefully selected the best products, yarns and materials with customised patterns to create fine hand made products here in Llandovery Wales.  Our own floor looms are our work horses and they are lovingly used to produce all the items available in our shop and at craft fairs.  We will also commission weave authentic Welsh designs and historical patterns on request for blankets, scarves, cushion covers, upholstery fabric, and many other possibilities,

We simply love colour.  We offer a full portfolio of synthetic and natural dyes, indigo, salts and mordants to combine with all your dyeing project needs.
