Beata dyes her yarn in Cork, Ireland and covers the wide spectrum of colours, tones and moods. She 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.
