Hi, I'm Viki and I am the yarn dyer and knitwear designer behind Tiny Teal Handcrafted, based in the heart of the West Midlands countryside.
Taking inspiration from many things; from landscapes to nature, people and places to beautiful objects and the occasional figment of my imagination, I love to layer colour and play with different resists and different fibres to create unique, yet repeatable colourways.
All of my regular, repeatable colourways are available, dyed to order, on your choice of beautiful bases; including silky 100% Merino, super sheepy British BlueFaced Leicester, luxurious Merino with Cashmere and Nylon, a stunning Yak and Merino blend and gorgeously soft Kid Silk Mohair and Baby Suri Alpaca Silk. Whether you want just one skein or ten, sock weight, DK or chunky, we can put together your perfect palette in no time.
With regular shop updates, you can also choose from a range of ready to ship skeins including popular regular colourways, one off’s and unrepeatable colourways. Or, if you are feeling brave you can always play pot luck and pick up one of our fabulous (and heavily discounted) Mystery Grab Bags or join our regular monthly Mystery Yarn Club.
I recently published my first knitting pattern, a lovely top down sweater called the Aurora Sweater. I am currently working on my next pattern which I hope to release at the end of May. I am passionate about creating knitwear that is all inclusive, not only size inclusive but experience inclusive too. I aim for my patterns to be well written and clear whilst being simple enough to be completed by knitters at all levels. I am also hoping to create and run some workshops to help knitters to understand how they can adapt published patterns to better fit their personal requirements.
