Fashion: Specialising in knitwear, Freestyle Saori weaving and unique handspun yarns made from wool, natural, local and unusual fibres


I create unique knitwear – using mostly British yarns that can be worn in many ways. The ‘wear many ways waistcoat’ designed so that you can get many looks from one piece of clothing.

I combine Saori weaving using handspun yarns and unusual fibres with knitwear to make one-off pieces of clothing that can be worn upside down! Using raw, local sheep’s fleece that I wash, dye, spin into ‘art yarns’ and weave into collars for coats.

Twisted Tailor works from The Saori Shed. Saori weaving is a Japanese weaving technique that promotes freestyle weaving with no rules or restrictions. I offer weaving workshops in the joyful art of Saori weaving on Japanese looms in the DesignerMakers21 Studio in Diss. All abilities welcome for more info please see www.thesaorished.co.uk
