I started spinning in 2007, and have been obsessed ever since. There's nothing more centering then sitting in front of a spinning wheel or with a spindle and letting fibre flow through your fingers. As I fell deeper down the spinning rabbit hole, I started playing around with dyeing my own colours. That, coupled with a move to the UK and shifting to part-time lab work resulted in 2012 in the launch of Porpoise Fur.

My goal is to provide my customers with high quality handdyed fibers in a wide range of colourways, from semisolids to variegated to gradients. All my bases are fibers that I spin myself and love. Every colourway has a specific inspirational story or image behind it; some of them come directly from my training as a biomedical research scientist, some from things I see in everyday life, and others from inspirations as varied as books, music and travels with my family.

Thanks for coming to visit, and don't hesitate to get in touch!
