Hi I’m Beth, knitter, dyer and owner behind Beehive Yarns. I started dyeing yarn about 3 years ago now and have enjoyed growing the business from my kitchen table in our old house with a small child in tow to our very own garden studio! (It really sounds much more glam than it is – I share it with lots of spiders and a family of bumblebees).
My colourways are inspired by all sorts of adventures – travel, film, books – and you will notice a lot of song titles! #musicislife. Always at the heart is a love of all things vintage and particularly mid-century. That’s where the names for my yarn bases came from – all those glamorous ladies with beehive hairdo’s from the 1960s!
Nothing makes me happier than seeing what you make with your yarn so please pop over and say hello if you’re at a yarn show or, if you’re an Instagram addict like me then tag Beehive Yarns in your photos!
