Home: Welcome

Hello! I'm Elizabeth Tanner - 


I LOVE yarn, but I HATE waste,

so I blend locally sourced animal fibres

with sustainable textile waste to spin

squishy nature-inspired art yarns. 

I use my yarns for Saori-style weaving on a rigid heddle loom,

and for knitting and crochet;

any fibres I don't spin are woven on a peg loom or felted

to produce natural, earthy rugs and cushions. 

I'm also passionate about informing and inspiring others, 

so I create spinning and weaving kits, and run workshops at

A Tail of Yarn Studio

Home Farm, Whiteshoot Hill, Redlynch SP5 2PR

where I promote a mindful and sustainable way of life,

keeping traditional crafts alive in an ever-changing world.  


From Sheep to Shawl..

here are some of the local sheep

whose fleece I wash and spin. 

Meet JC. 

He's a Jacob's Sheep and he's from the flock at Baynhams Brewery in Brockenhurst.
