Across the UK there are some amazing indie dyers. I am so happy to be bringing some of them to Aberdeen. Each month, which will be a first for Aberdeen the shop will be showcasing a range from an indie dyer. Each month will be a new dyer.

Gong Crafts - Dyer of the month for April
We are Clive and Laurence, a husband and wife team, and we formed Gongcrafts from our wee croft house in a remote village nestled along Scotland's most northerly coast in the county of Sutherland.
We are very excited to be sending our vibrant range of botanically hand dyed luxury yarns for you to see, touch and squeeze! Our yarns have a lustre and texture which, we are sure, will have your hearts racing!
We are passionate about the extraordinary landscape in which we live and many of our works are inspired by the colours and places we explore here. We are keen that all our products “tread lightly upon the Earth”, hence our adventures in botanical dyes and a desire that all our materials are from a sustainable source.
As a truly sustainable way to clothe ourselves, all things wool are our biggest passion. Our knitting yarns use only locally harvested plant material and botanical extracts from sustainable sources. We create with love and hope our customers receive the same joy in their purchases that we experience in their making.
