I'm Rachel and I am the owner and dyer at Pook Yarns.
Knitting, crochet and yarn is in my blood. My great aunt owned a yarn shop in Rhyl during the 1960's and 70's. My mum ran a machine knitting business from home while I was a child. My dad also loved to knit.
I started dyeing yarn in 2015, focusing on gradient yarns. Under the business name Pook GB I ran a popular monthly yarn club and dyed gradient yarns for my Etsy shop from my home in Manchester, United Kingdom. I was also very fortunate to be a vendor at Yarndale, Wonderwool, Yarningham and Woolfest.
In 2019, my family and I moved from the United Kingdom to Kolding in the south of Denmark. My dyes and yarn came with me, and I soon started my new business, Pook Yarns. I am still obsessed with gradient yarn!
