Beata dyes her yarn in Cork, Ireland and covers the wide spectrum of colours, tones and moods.  IMG_3601She is immensely popular and has a wide international following.

I have been following her progress probably for over eight years, from when she was a very small indie dyer.   Her colours and choice of bases continue to inspire me.

She has some lovely free patterns on her website that knit really well with her hand dyed  yarns, but her yarns have really inspired many of Stephen West’s designs.

There will be an opportunity to enter the raffle at each stop and after the tour, you can recover at the after-party @ The Safari Lounge located at 21 Cadzow Place, EH7 5SN (from 2pm – 7pm), where the raffle will be held at the end of the day.

As it is also coming up to Be Inspired Fibres’s One Year Anniversary, there will be a special 5% discount on all purchases on the day and a free small sachet of Soak Wash for purchases over £20.00.(while stock last)..

As the school summer holidays are upon us already, the shop will be closed for a week from Friday 27th June and re-opening on Tuesday, 8th July, as I will be on vacation down in Cornwall with the family.

See you next Saturday in Marchmont, near the Meadows!
